The Miami Dolphins placed defensive tackle Dan Wilkinson on injured reserve Thursday with a calf injury, and signed defensive tackle Chase Page off the San Diego Chargers' practice squad.
North Carolina Preview 2006 - Defense
The North Carolina defensive line has the most concerns after losing top pass rusher Tommy Davis and tackle Chase Page, but it should be fine if Kyndraus Guy and Shelton Bynum can shine in the middle. Outside linebacker Larry Edwards is an all-star caliber talent ready to lead the back seven. Safeties Trimaine Goddard and Kareen Taylor are unsung rocks.
Chase Page Drafted by Chargers in 7th Round
Chase Page said he wasn’t going to stress out on Sunday, lamenting whether or not he would be included in this year’s NFL Draft. But as time wore on, and a few teams began to call, Page admits he was getting a little antsy before the San Diego Chargers made him their seventh round pick. Now, after one long exhale, Page is fired up about moving from one end of the coast to another and getting on with his pro career.
Page says his numbers don't show his game
The more Chase Page studies the NFL Draft, the less he understands. Page, a former defensive lineman at North Carolina, has talked to representatives of several teams. He has heard that his best shot at being drafted could come in the sixth round, but he is almost certain that he won't be taken and will be a free agent able to negotiate with any team.
Page Prepares for NFL
Next weekend, North Carolina defensive tackle Chase Page hopes to spend some quiet time with his family at home near Charleston, S.C. He’s expecting it to be a routine spring afternoon in the historic southern city. And, not necessarily an afterthought, but maybe his name will be called during the 2006 NFL Draft.
Tar Heels Participate In NFL Pro Timing Day
The University of North Carolina held its annual Pro Timing Day on Tuesday with representatives from all 32 National Football League teams in attendance. Several Tar Heels had outstanding efforts in the weight room, led by Tommy Davis, who benched 225 pounds a team-high 34 times. The next closest was Chase Page at 28.
UNC seniors hope for 'perfect' ending at Kenan
Chase Page will have an extra large cheering section at Kenan Stadium this weekend. Page is one of 24 North Carolina senior football players who will suit up for their final home game Saturday, when Duke visits Chapel Hill for a 1 p.m. kickoff. The seniors will be recognized in a pregame ceremony.
Heels say they won't look ahead
Quarterback Matt Baker and defensive tackle Chase Page of the Tar Heels said they have no doubts that both games can be won. Baker, though, doesn't want his team straying from the strict preparation policy that it has followed all season. "It's Duke first, and that's all we're concerned about," Baker said. "I addressed the team (Monday) and I said, 'I don't want to hear anyone say a word about Virginia Tech."
Heels hurting from damage to defensive line
One of the keys to North Carolina's defensive improvement this season has been its depth on the defensive line. But Saturday, in a 33-30 overtime loss to Maryland, the Tar Heels found themselves thin at the ends. Fifth-year senior Chase Page spent 15 plays at defensive end, the first time he's played anywhere but tackle since the end of the 2003 season. For the game, Page had two sacks and three tackles for a loss.
Massive test for Heels
North Carolina senior defensive tackle Chase Page is accustomed to knocking heads with gargantuan offensive linemen. Virtually every Division I-A team has 300-pound behemoths these days. "That doesn't make them automatically good," Page said defiantly. "But the thing about Boston College is they are big -- and good."
UNC readies for emotional rivalry
Many people would prefer to have the North Carolina-N.C. State football game late in the year, to culminate the teams’ seasons with what many fans consider the state’s most important gridiron rivalry. Instead, the two teams will meet this Saturday, the earliest date the two UNC-system schools have clashed since 1989. “I’d like to play them at the end of the year,” said senior defensive tackle Chase Page. “But we’ll play them first game of the season if they want.”
Skip Seagraves, Chase Page return after missing last season
Chase Page was one of the first people Skip Seagraves called last fall after Seagraves learned a broken foot would end his season. Page already was out with a torn finger tendon and understood Seagraves' despair. "I was crying like a baby," Page said of his own preseason injury, which occurred when his finger got tangled in a teammate's jersey. He tried to comfort Seagraves. He told him North Carolina would get him a sixth year of eligibility, that they would play together as seniors in 2005 instead of 2004.
Countdown to Kickoff: Education of Khalif
For the last 10 months, Khalif Mitchell has basked in the glow of making the game-saving stop and forcing a fumble from the Wolfpack's T.A. McLendon on the doorstep of the goal line. It was one of the most memorable moments in the history of the series between the two old rivals. And it was, well, just a bit lucky. "Khalif was totally in the wrong gap on that play," Chase Page says with a big smile. "That's not where he was supposed to be."
Chase Page, Skip Seagraves hope better days in store
Healthier and happier, Chase Page and Skip Seagraves are ready to return to the starting lineup and try the veteran-leader thing one more time. As coach John Bunting sees it, they've each been given renewed hope for an NFL future. "It's always better to be older and wiser, I guess," said Page, 22. "I felt like last year I was really physically ready. And I feel that way this year, too."
Chase Page's return should boost Heels
Defensive tackle Chase Page never imagined that in the middle of August, 2005, he would still be at North Carolina waiting to play his last season in Kenan Stadium. But he never thought that one of the smallest and most inconspicuous parts of his body would break down a year ago, require surgery and send him to the sideline for the entire 2004 season.
