Miami freshman QB Jarren Williams (ab) did not practice Thursday.

Hurricanes HC Mark Richt told reporters that Williams is suffering from the lingering effects of an abdominal strain he dealt with earlier in the year. Williams also didn't practice on Wednesday. The four-star recruit is likely to redshirt this year, so minor health concerns aren't much of a concern.

Miami HC Mark Richt ruled out junior WR Ahmmon Richards (knee) for Saturday's game against Florida International.

This will be the third straight game the injury-prone Richards has missed after suffering the injury in the opener against LSU. He's officially walking down the path of a second straight year wrecked by injuries. Last fall, the 6-foot-1, 190-pounder was limited to only six games after suffering a severe hamstring injury in August camp and then later getting shut down for the year courtesy of a torn meniscus sustained during a late November practice.

Miami HC Mark Richt ruled out senior S Jaquan Johnson (hamstring) for Saturday's game against FIU.

Last Saturday against Toledo, Johnson suffered a right hamstring injury during the second quarter and exited the game. Miami's defense was pitching a shutout at the time and ended up giving up 24 points to Toledo after Johnson left. Something to keep an eye on Saturday. Johnson is one of the best safeties in the nation.

Miami junior WR Ahmmon Richards (knee) was working out on an exercise bike on Wednesday.

Richards (6'1/190) is day-to-day with a knee injury initially sustained in the opener against LSU. While he has not played in either of the past two games, the junior wideout was listed on the team's Week 4 depth chart in advance of this weekend's coming tilt with FIU and there is tentative optimism that he'll be able to play in that contest. We'll continue to keep tabs on his status in the leadup to kickoff.

Miami junior WR Ahmmon Richards (knee) did not practice on Tuesday.

Richards (6'1/190) is being considered a day-to-day proposition. He has not played in either of the last two games due to the knee injury he sustained against LSU in the opener. Miami is keeping optimistic about his availability for Saturday's game against FIU, though, and did list him as starting X-receiver on the Week 4 depth chart, a glimmer of hope for the talented-but-injury-cursed wideout. We should have a more clear idea as to Richards' availability for the weekend as the practice week progresses.
Sep 18 - 3:57 PM

Miami sophomore TE Brian Polendey (knee) is expected to miss the remainder of the season.

Polendey (6'6/230) will undergo surgery to repair his knee injury, the team announced on Tuesday. The sophomore traveled with the Hurricanes for their win over Toledo on Saturday, but did not play in the contest. He ends his 2018 campaign having caught one pass for 14 yards. While the loss of Polendey in and of itself is not a major blow, it thins out the tight ends room to just two on scholarship in the form of true freshmen Brevin Jordan and Will Mallory. Miami previously lost TE Michael Irvin II to a knee injury in preseason camp.
Sep 18 - 2:09 PM

Miami junior WR Ahmmon Richards (knee) is listed as the starting X-receiver on the depth chart for Saturday's tilt with FIU.

This tentatively suggests that Richards will be returning on Saturday after he missed the last two games with a knee injury suffered in the opener against LSU. Of course, the Hurricanes won't rush him back for FIU, so even a minor setback this week could compromise his status. We'll keep you updated as we go.

The Draft Network's Jon Ledyard lists Miami junior RB Travis Homer as a player whose stock fell after his performance on Saturday against Toledo.

Homer ran for 62 yards on 16 carries in the win, so it wasn't an ugly statistical game, but it's not a great effort against a MAC squad, and as we all know, the stats don't always tell the story. "...Homer just isn’t decisive or explosive enough to take advantage of slight creases up front," Ledyard writes, "and he’s not the type of playmaker to create yardage on his own outside of structure or at the second level." He's also losing carries to DeeJay Dallas, as Ledyard notes, which will certainly hurt his draft stock if only because of tape.
Sep 17 - 9:56 PM

Miami sophomore RB DeeJay Dallas rushed for 110 yards and a touchdown on 17 carries in Saturday's 49-24 win over Toledo.

First career 100-yard game for Dallas in this one. The 5-foot-10, 200-pounder notched a 19-yard touchdown run midway through the third quarter to put Miami up 28-14. Toledo would continue to paw at the Hurricanes on the scoreboard, but ultimately didn't have enough offensive juice to hang. Dallas has now rushed for 196 yards through three games played. Of note, the sophomore out-carried Travis Homer 17-16 on the afternoon. He'll next have a chance to impress when Miami hosts FIU next weekend.
Sep 15 - 5:54 PM

Miami redshirt senior QB Malik Rosier completed 13-of-23 passes for 205 yards and two touchdowns while rushing for 80 yards and three additional scores in Saturday's 49-24 win over Toledo.

Rosier (6'1/216) was far from perfect through the air, but he did uncork a few beautiful passes -- including one jaw-dropper to a twisting Jeff Thomas for a big third-quarter gain to help halt Toledo momentum. As for his rushing output on Saturday, color it surprising. The redshirt senior is mobile, but generally far from a dual-threat. He managed just one game of more than 50 yards rushing a year ago. Miami will host FIU next weekend as Rosier tries for another big showing.
Sep 15 - 5:17 PM

Miami senior S Jaquan Johnson is "unlikely" to return to Saturday's game at Toledo due to a right hamstring injury.

Johnson did not return to the game after suffering the injury during the second quarter, and his absence had a noticeable impact on the Miami defense. Johnson's efforts to loosen up the hamstring via stretching and riding an exercise bike proved to be unsuccessful.
Sep 15 - 2:54 PM

Miami senior S Jaquan Johnson has not played in the second half of Saturday's game at Toledo due to a right hamstring injury.

Johnson, considered by some scouts to be the top draft-eligible safety in the 2019 class, was seen on the Miami sideline riding an exercise bike in an attempt to loosen up the muscle. In the aftermath of Johnson's injury the Miami defense struggled to slow down Toledo in the passing game, and the Rockets managed to score 14 points in the third quarter.
Sep 15 - 2:35 PM

Miami senior S Jaquan Johnson (undisclosed) remains in the locker room to begin the second half against Toledo.

He suffered an injury during Toledo's only scoring drive of the game so far in the second quarter. We'll have an update on Miami's star safety when more information is known.
Sep 15 - 1:56 PM

Miami received a verbal commitment from three-star 2019 DT Jason Blissett.

Blissett hails from Brooklyn, and he's rated by 247 Sports as the third best player to come out of New York in 2019. In addition to the Hurricanes, the 6-foot-3, 271-pound defender has offers from schools like Florida, Tennessee, Texas A&M, and several other Power Five schools. According to reports, he's a defender with power and strength, but also the athleticism to rush the passer from inside as well. With the commit, Miami's class now ranks 18th overall in 247 Sports rankings, and third among ACC schools.

Miami HC declined to specify whether freshman RB Lorenzo Lingard had bypassed veterans Trayone Gray or Robert Burns on the depth chart to move into RB3 role behind Travis Homer and DeeJay Dallas.

But Richt also didn't say that he hadn't. "We’re preparing him and others to get ready to play. Guys did get a chance to play last week and that was helpful," he said. "Lorenzo’s certainly helped his cause by being highly productive and now it’s still a matter of understanding the game plan and making sure you can handle all of it, not just part of it." Lingard, a five-star recruit with a reported 4.27 forty, looked good in Miami’s blowout win over Savannah State, posting a 4-82-2 (20.5 ypc!) rushing line. We'd imagine we'll see him on Saturday against Toledo.
