NC State running back Matt Dayes will miss the rest of the season with a foot injury, reports Joe Giglio of The News & Observer

The loss of Dayes is a major blow to the Wolfpack’s running game. Their depth had already taken a hit when Shadrach Thornton was kicked off the team earlier this year after he was arrested.

Dayes suffered the injury at the end of the second quarter in a 56–41 loss to Clemson.

The junior has rushed for 865 yards on 134 carries this season. He currently leads the ACC in rushing touchdowns with 12.

Dayes was on pace to be NC State’s first 1,000-yard rusher since T.A. McLendon in 2002.
