    Deacons have a Leak

    Wake Forest sophomore quarterback C.J. Leak suffered ligament damage to his left knee in Saturday's 55-7 loss to Clemson and will miss the remainder of the 2000 season, Deacon coach Jim Caldwell said.

    An MRI was performed on Leak following the game.

    Leak, a graduate of Charlotte's Independence High, completed 30 passes for 341 yards and two interceptions in his first three games this season. The Deacons may opt to apply for a medical redshirt for Leak.

    Caldwell also announced that sophomore quarterback James MacPherson may be cleared to play for the Deacs' Sept. 30 date with Virginia. He was recovering from arthroscopic knee surgery performed last spring.
