(AP) - Wake Forest cornerback Kevin Patterson might need surgery to remove his appendix, putting him in doubt for Saturday's game at No. 14 Boston College.

Patterson was admitted to a hospital Monday night after experiencing abdominal pain, coach Jim Grobe said Tuesday.

"I think he's got some infection," Grobe said. "My guess right now is it's going to come out."

Patterson had a similar episode this summer, when hospital doctors believed he had appendicitis. He was released without further treatment after the pain subsided.

Patterson has started all six games for the Demon Deacons (2-4, 1-2 Atlantic Coast Conference).

If Patterson can't play, Wake Forest probably would turn to Riley Swanson, who played in all 23 games the past two seasons. Swanson has a forced fumble and a pass breakup this season after being suspended for the opener for breaking a team rule.

WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. - Wake Forest cornerback Kevin Patterson will miss Saturday's game at No. 14 Boston College after undergoing an appendectomy yesterday, school officials said.

Football trainer Don Steelman said Patterson will miss two to three weeks, although he will be re-evaluated next week. Patterson was admitted to a hospital Monday night, coach Jim Grobe said.

Patterson had a similar episode this summer, when hospital doctors believed he had appendicitis. He was released without further treatment after the pain subsided.

Patterson has started all six games for the Demon Deacons (1-2 ACC, 2-4).

Riley Swanson, who played in all 23 games the past two seasons, will probably replace Patterson. Swanson has a forced fumble and a pass breakup this season after being suspended for the opener for breaking a team rule.

Here's hoping for a quick recovery for Kevin!
