N.C. State Wolfpack scrimmage today

from Ken Tysiac at the Charlotte Observer:

Attention to detail and limiting mistakes will be key objectives today as N.C. State takes the field for its second preseason scrimmage.

“We’re going to play a little more of a game situation,” coach Tom O’Brien said. “There’s going to be penalties marked off, and it’s going to be more realistic. Obviously penalties and mistakes are really going to come into play, and things like that. We’re going to have to play smart, and we’re looking for great effort.”

The most important development for N.C. State Thursday might occur off the field, as linebacker Nate Irving is scheduled for a doctor’s appointment. Irving, who was injured in a June 28 car crash, will have the leg he broke examined.

He already has had doctors examine his lung, ribs and shoulder, which also were injured. If O’Brien gives an update on Irving’s status, he will do so after the scrimmage, according to N.C. State sports information director Annabelle Myers.

N.C. State currently lists Irving as out indefinitely.
