NC State running back Dakwa Nichols leaves game against Syracuse with apparent right leg injury

NC State has lost one of its offensive players to injury.

Late in the first quarter of the Orange’s game against NC State on Saturday, running back Dakwa Nichols appeared to land awkwardly on his right leg after being brought down by the facemask by Syracuse linebacker Parris Bennett. Nichols would need an aircast applied to his leg and would be taken off the field to the locker room on a cart.

Nichols, a redshirt senior, had appeared in three games this season, rushing seven times for 36 yards. He has been primarily used in a backup role in the Wolfpack offense, featuring in special teams in his redshirt freshman season before shifting solely to the backfield later in his career.

The Rockingham, N.C. native had appeared in 29 games over the past four years, with most of his time in Raleigh held back due to various injuries suffered on the field and on the practice grounds.
