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.

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.
Oct 11 - 10:43 PM

Canes Insight's Peter Ariz passes along that Florida believes that redshirt junior RB Trayone Gray could be ready for an expanded workload.

Gray (6'2/216) has seen just four carries this season, with Ariz passing along that mental mistakes in practice have prevented him from completely earning the coaching staff's trust. However, with Mark Walton out for the season after undergoing ankle surgery, don't be surprised if Canes start playing around with their options behind newly-anointed starting running back Travis Homer.
Oct 11 - 9:14 PM

Miami freshman G Navaughn Donaldson (ankle) will likely miss Saturday's game against Georgia Tech.

Donaldson (6'6/341) suffered what Canes Insight's Peter Ariz terms a "nasty" ankle injury against Florida State on Saturday. Ariz is hearing that freshman Corey Gaynor -- who has been working in the offensive line rotation -- will draw the start in his place come Saturday's showdown with the Yellow Jackets.
Oct 11 - 8:06 PM

Miami freshman Dee-Jay Dallas has shifted from receiver to running back.

His move is a fallout of Mark Walton's season-ending injury and the Hurricanes' desire to fortify depth at the position. Miami head coach Mark Richt toyed around with the idea of using Dallas at running back over the summer, so no doubt the player is at least somewhat familiar with his new assignment.
Oct 11 - 4:33 PM

Miami sophomore WR Ahmmon Richards opened practice Tuesday on a stationary bike.

Richards played against FSU while dealing with an ongoing hamstring issue and caught four passes for 68 yards. He has been able to take the field for the last two contests after missing the opening two.

Miami junior RB Mark Walton will undergo season-ending surgery on his right ankle.

Walton injured his ankle near the end of Saturday's win over Florida State. Miami HC Mark Richt declined to offer further specifics as to the exact nature of that injury, but explained that "it’s the type of surgery that guys that have had it have recovered 100-percent and never had an issue with that type of thing again." The loss is a significant one for the Hurricanes, as Walton had rushed for 428 yards (7.6 YPC) and three touchdowns in four games this season. Travis Homer (213 yards, 8.3 YPC, three touchdowns) will take on the bulk of carries moving forward with Walton sidelined for the remainder of the campaign.
Oct 9 - 2:08 AM

Miami senior WR Braxton Berrios caught eight passes for 90 yards and two touchdowns in Saturday's 24-20 win over Florida State.

Berrios served as QB Malik Rosier's favorite target on the afternoon and made touchdown grabs of 21 and six yards in the third and fourth quarters, respectively. The 5-foot-9, 180-pounder has caught at least one scoring pass in all four of Miami's games to date.
Oct 7 - 8:05 PM

Miami redshirt junior QB Malik Rosier completed 19-of-44 passes for 254 yards, three touchdowns and an interception in Saturday's 24-20 win over Florida State.

Rosier was not particularly efficient in his passing -- FSU's secondary is by far the stiffest he has faced this season -- but he came up with some huge throws late after the Seminoles took a 20-17 lead with 1:29 remaining in the contest. The redshirt junior proceeded to drive his team 75 yards down the field, ultimately delivering the Hurricanes a win when he hit Darrell Langham for a 23-yard touchdown down the right sideline. Rosier has very quietly put in a nice season through four games, having thrown at least two touchdown passes in all four contests -- three of which have seen him throw for three scores. Miami will look to improve to 5-0 when they take on Georgia Tech in what could be a sneaky-tricky game next Saturday.
Oct 7 - 7:42 PM

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

Richards missed Miami's first two games of the season due to a severe hamstring pull, but came on to make his season debut against Duke on Friday, catching three passes for 102 yards and a touchdown. He is an explosive, dynamic receiver when healthy.
