Lloyd out for season

Lloyd will miss the rest of the season due to a knee injury.

North Carolina long snapper Mack Lloyd will miss the rest of the season due to a knee injury he sustained Thursday night in the Tar Heels' 27-10 loss to No. 6 South Carolina.

Lloyd, from Cary, N.C., won the starting long snapper job this fall after overcoming a torn ACL in 2012. The fifth-year senior walked-on to UNC in 2009 and was recently awarded a scholarship by coach Larry Fedora.

Sophomore Conor Fry will assume the deep snapping duties for the Tar Heels in Lloyd's place. Fry walked onto the team in 2012 and handled all the snapping duties last season without a single mistake.
