Larry Fedora on Shakeel Rashad collision with Conner Vernon: There was no malice

Monday, October 22, 2012

North Carolina coach Larry Fedora earlier today defended freshman linebacker Shakeel Rashad, who collided with Duke receiver Conner Vernon on Saturday during the second quarter of the Blue Devils’ 33-30 victory. Rashad ran onto the field while the Duke offense lined up. Rashad collided with Vernon and knocked him to the ground. The question is whether Rashad went out of his way to run into Vernon.
