UNC DT Nazair Jones: 'I'm Back'

UNC defensive tackle Nazair Jones will take the field on Saturday.

CHAPEL HILL, N.C. - Larry Fedora and Gene Chizik aren’t willing to accept any excuses for poor performances, but make no mistake - the UNC defense missed Nazair Jones.

Much was missing in the defensive effort against James Madison, and Jones's physical, powerful body on the line undoubtedly would have made a difference.

With the tough driving force of Pittsburgh running back James Conner running behind a strong line of blockers, Jones will be a key in stopping him, and putting the ball back in the hands of Mitch Trubisky. Saturday's ACC opener will be a true not only for Jones, but the UNC defense as a whole.
