2003 stats

Colmer missed the 2003 season with an unusual injury known as Parsonage Tuner Syndrome, a viral infection in his brachial plexis that caused numbness and pain. He was awarded a sixth year of eligibility and will suit up for the Wolfpack in 2004. He entered the 2003 season as a preseason All-ACC selection and his return could be a major addition to NC State's offensive line.

2004 Outlook

A healthy Chris Colmer should have an outstanding 2004 season for the Wolfpack. He entered 2003 as one of the nation's top returning lineman and this year should bolster what may be NC State's best offensive line ever. Look for him to contend for All-ACC and possibly All-American honors in his final season at NC State.
