Hurst, an anchor at left tackle for much of his time in Chapel Hill, made his 49th career start on Saturday. CBSSports.com has the 6-foot-7, 305 pound tackle listed as the No. 10 offensive tackle (No. 88 overall) in the 2014 NFL Draft class. Before the injury, he was projected as a second or third round selection.
The school provided no details on a timetable for recovery. The ESPN cameras did not show Hurst in the play when he sustained the injury, and the broadcast team opted not to replay the image of his leg getting rolled up after he went down.
