Leary suffered the injury in the third quarter last Saturday Florida State, and left the game to receive medical attention. The program announced on Saturday that he would undergo season-ending surgery for a torn pectoral muscle.
In Leary’s absence, NC State will start Jack Chambers, a transfer from Charleston Southern. Chambers got his start against an undefeated Syracuse team on Saturday, throwing 18 times on 30 attempts, racking up only 160 yards. The Wolfpack fell to the Orange 24-9, only their second loss of the season.
NC State is off this week but will host Virginia Tech in Week 9.
