Miami sophomore WR Ahmmon Richards (hamstring) is not listed on the team's injury report in advance of Saturday's game against Syracuse.

While we're still taking a wait-and-see approach to Richards when it comes to his game-availability -- he went so far as to warm up against Georgia Tech this past weekend but did not ultimately play in that contest -- all signs at this juncture are pointing toward the sophomore wideout being able to give it a go versus the Orange on Saturday. He has managed to appear in just two of five games this season due to a hamstring pull sustained in preseason camp, but is an uber-talented offensive weapon when healthy.

Miami senior CB Dee Delaney (undisclosed) has been ruled out for Saturday's game against Syracuse.

Delaney was listed as a starter on the depth chart earlier in the practice week, but that was clearly somewhat optimistic. He is now set to miss his second consecutive game. While Canes HC Mark Richt has labeled the 6-foot-1, 191-pounder as "day-to-day," that came in contrast to an ESPN report over the weekend that Delaney could miss upwards of 6-8 weeks with the injury concern.
Oct 19 - 1:02 PM

Miami freshman G Navaughn Donaldson (ankle) is listed as "probable" for Saturday's game against Syracuse.

The 6-foot-6, 341-pound Donaldson injured his ankle in a win over Florida State two weeks ago and subsequently sat against Georgia Tech on Saturday. If Donaldson can't play against Syracuse, Corey Gaynor could see beefed up work along the line in his place.

Miami senior CB Dee Delaney (undisclosed) is listed as a starter on the depth chart in advance of Saturday's game against Syracuse.

Delaney (6'1/191) did not play in Saturday's win against Georgia Tech due to the undisclosed injury concern. While ESPN was reporting this weekend that he could potentially be sidelined for 6-8 weeks, Miami HC Mark Richt is saying that Delaney is "day-to-day." We'll have more information as to Delaney's availability against the Orange on Saturday when Miami releases their depth chart on Thursday.

Miami redshirt junior WR Darrell Langham snagged five balls for 100 yards in Saturday's comeback win over Georgia Tech.

The 6-foot-4, 220-pounder scarcely saw the field in his first three years in Coral Gables, appearing in eight games while recording zero catches coming into this year. But without Ahmmon Richards, the Canes have leaned heavily on Langham in recent weeks, and he's bailed the team out with game-saving catches two straight weeks. Saturday marked his first career 100-yard game. "He’s grown a lot since I got here," Mark Richt said. "He was a guy who had some tools, his height, his size, he’s 225-230 pounds, good speed, not unbelievable speed for a big man, good ball skills. I think there’s a level of consistency and confidence he didn’t show early on. He is blooming right before our eyes."

Miami head coach Mark Richt said he "doesn’t know" if freshman G Navaughn Donaldson (ankle) will be ready against Syracuse.

Donaldson (6'6/341) suffered an ankle injury against Florida State two weeks ago. He missed last week's win over Georgia Tech.
Oct 18 - 7:49 PM

Miami freshman WR Evidence Njoku will miss the remainder of the season after sustaining what HC Mark Richt termed a "lower right extremity injury" in practice on Tuesday.

While Richt did not specify the exact nature of the injury, the Miami Herald's Susan Miller Degnan is reporting that Njoku's right knee is the issue, here. The 6-foot-4, 195-pounder is the younger brother of Cleveland Browns TE David Njoku and ranked as a three-star recruit coming out of high school this winter. He has yet to catch a pass at the collegiate level.
Oct 18 - 5:25 PM

Miami sophomore WR Ahmmon Richards (hamstring) returned to practice on Tuesday.

Richards continues to be nagged by a hamstring injury sustained in August camp -- he has played in just two games this season -- but is beginning to make incremental progress. The 6-foot-2, 175-pounder dressed out for Saturday's game against Georgia Tech before Canes HC Mark Richt ultimately opted to rest him in the contest. His status for this weekend's game against Syracuse should clarify over the remainder of the practice week. For now, consider him day-to-day.
Oct 17 - 7:12 PM

Miami HC Mark Richt refuted an ESPN report from over the weekend that senior CB Dee Delaney (undisclosed) is "out 6-8 weeks" with an injury.

"It’s more day-to-day," Richt said. "I don’t even know where that number came from." Delaney missed Saturday's win over Georgia Tech with his injury.
Oct 16 - 1:55 PM

Miami head coach Mark Richt deems sophomore WR Ahmmon Richards (hamstring) "day-to-day."

Richards warmed up in advance of Saturday's game against Georgia Tech, but the decision was made to sit him again. "He warmed up pretty good. We considered using him. He wasn't 100 percent," Richt said. "We don't want this to last the whole season. We want to get him well and get him going. Our hopes would be he will play this week, but we had those hopes last week." Richards strained his hamstring in camp and has missed three of five games.
Oct 16 - 12:23 PM

Miami redshirt junior QB Malik Rosier completed 24-of-38 passes for 302 yards and a touchdown in Saturday's 25-24 win over Gergia Tech.

Rosier was highly mediocre for the first three-plus quarters of the game, but boy did he turn it on when the Hurricanes really needed him. The Hurricanes looked dead in the water on 4th-and-10 with :42 seconds left from Georgia Tech's 43 when Rosier fluttered a ball downfield into double-coverage that Darrell Langham came down with for a 28-yard gain. That completion set up the game-winning field goal, the only time during the game that Miami led. This marked the second-straight week that Rosier has led a game-winning drive.
Oct 14 - 7:22 PM

Miami sophomore RB Travis Homer ran for 170 yards and a touchdown on 20 carries in Saturday's 25-24 win over Georgia Tech.

The Hurricanes handed the starting running back job to Homer this week after it was announced that Mark Walton would miss the remainder of the season with an injury. And boy did he impress in his first extended look against a Power 5 team, averaging 8.3 YPC. The 5-foot-11, 195-pound Homer ranked as ESPN's No. 175 overall prospect in the 2016 class.
Oct 14 - 7:14 PM

Miami sophomore WR Ahmmon Richards (hamstring) was warming up in advance of Saturday's game against Georgia Tech.

Richards was considered questionable for Saturday's game -- he has been limited by a severe hamstring pull this season -- but the 6-foot-2, 175-pounder will try to give it a go against the Yellow Jackets. He could potentially be limited in the contest. Miami has played matters very cautiously with the sophomore this year.
Oct 14 - 3:37 PM

Miami junior S Sheldrick Redwine (upper extremity) has been ruled out for Saturday's game against Georgia Tech.

While Canes HC Mark Richt has not forwarded a specific diagnosis, the South Florida Sun-Sentinel's Christy Cabrera Chirinos passes along that Redwine might be dealing with a concussion. In four games this season, the 6-foot-1, 195-pounder junior has registered 12 tackles and a pair of passes defended. Amari Carter could see additional work with Redwine nixed for Saturday's game.
Oct 12 - 6:09 PM

Canes Insight's Peter Ariz passes along that if Miami sophomore WR Ahmmon Richards (hamstring) plays against Georgia Tech on Saturday, it will be in a limited capacity.

Richards continues to struggle with a pulled hamstring suffered in August camp. That injury cost him the first two games of the campaign, but the 6-foot-2, 175-pounder has managed to play in Miami's last two contests. He has logged a 7-124-1 receiving line in that space. Expect further updates as to his playing status for Saturday as the practice week winds down. Per Ariz, the team is planning for the game as though Richards will not be able to give it a go.
