UNC's Bernard did not travel with team

— University of North Carolina running back Gio Bernard did not travel with the team to Louisville Friday according to the school and his status for Saturday's game is uncertain.

Bernard, who had also been returning punts, was seen practicing earlier in the week with a brace on his left knee. On Wednesday, head coach Larry Fedora said that Bernard had not missed any reps in practice and that he “looked good.” North Carolina Logo More UNC Stories

Bernard, last season’s ACC Freshman of the Year, scored three touchdowns in the first half of the opener against Elon before injuring his left knee. He did not return to the field for the second half of the opener and was also forced to sit out last week’s 28-27 loss to Wake Forest.

In Bernard’s absence, A.J. Blue and Romar Morris received most of the carries against the Demon Deacons. Blue has three touchdowns on 28 carries totaling 145 yards to lead the Tar Heels in all three categories.

Roy Smith filled in for Bernard on punt returns last week. He totaled 28 yards on three returns with a long of 16 yards.

Louisville (2-0, 0-0 Big East) has yet to give up 100 yards total rushing in a game this year. They held Missouri State to 99 yards last week and Kentucky to 93 yards in the opener.

    No "Gio" in team there DebbieSAC. I did not see him say anything about a "built in excuse". Hmmm, you girls have matching collars to wear when out on the town together since you seem to want to tell us what HE was thinking?

    I'm so far ahead of you when you post I get the monthly rate at the Embassy Suites so I can relax while you stuggle to kiss the ground I walked on 4 months ago.

    Just in case you didn't know, you just got pwnd so badly, we will have to send out to the US State Dept. for extra pages to get stamped by me in your Troll Passport.

    Dang, pwnd once more. Quit crossing the blog road, you are getting flattened worse than a opossum trying to cross the Inner Beltline.

    Yep, backups played fine. YOu were whining like the clutch on an old Oliver tractor about excuses. Uh...let's see hater, I have not seen anyone "blame" the loss on Bernard. We stunk it up on offense and defense. I posted an eloquent monologue about it. So not sure of the red fogged images you see in your imagination but you are seeing them due to the Cranial Red Rash,

    I think it is funny that we caught static for playing Elon, but Dook is playing N.C. Central today and they lost to Elon by 20.

    I heard Crisp fractured his tail bone, and was likely out for the season. I'm being cautiously optimistic since TOB has not announced he would be out for the season yet. If a player is out for the season, why not go ahead and announce it?

    what???
    he merely claimed that bernard being out was a "built-in excuse" for hole fans after louisville plasters them... this article being written has lil (read- NOTHING) to do with that reality (that hole fans will whine about not having gio after louisville plants them in the mud).

    try and keep up.
