The injury initially appears to be the same as safety Michael Hamlin's injury suffered against Boston College (fifth metatarsal).
Hamlin is expected to play for the first time since that injury Saturday against Wake Forest.
Stuckey suffered the injury in a non-contact drill
in practice while making a cut. He will have surgery on the foot
"Chansi was having a terrific season," said head coach Tommy Bowden. "He is
such a talented player on the field, he has had so many momentum
changing plays this year. But, he is also one of our team leaders. It is a very big loss for our team."
Stuckey, who was a first team All-ACC wide receiver last season, currently leads the Tigers in receptions (25), receiving yardage (331) and receiving touchdowns (3).
For his career, Stuckey is 10th in school history in total
receptions with 116 and is 14th in receiving yards with 1391. He
was a first-team All-ACC receiver last year when he led the ACC in
receptions with 64. He was named to the preseason list of the
Belitnikoff Award for 2006.
Bowden said that other players would have to step up,
including freshman wide receiver Jacoby Ford, who has scored two
touchdowns on kick returns this year, but has just one reception.
"You don't plan on these things, but injuries are part of the game,"
said Stuckey. "I plan to be back at practice and help the receivers
and this team do whatever it can do to win at Wake Forest and any
other games until I can come back."
The Tigers have lost three starters to injury this season. Senior LB Anthony Waters will miss the rest of the year with a torn ACL suffered in the season opener against Florida Atlantic. Another linebacker, Tramaine Billie will also likely miss the rest of the year with a broken ankle after breaking ankle during preseason.
Redshirt sophomore safety Mike Hamlin has missed the last three games with a broken foot but is expected to return Saturday against Wake Forest.
