Miami junior RB Mark Walton will "be fine" despite suffering an ankle injury and is expected to practice this week ahead of Friday's game against Duke.

Walton's output was crazy on Saturday, as he rushed for over 200 yards on just 11 carries. Head coach Mark Richt called Walton "one of the best players I’ve been around," and we all know how many great backs Richt has coached.

Miami sophomore WR Ahmmon Richards is expected to play against Duke on Friday.

Richards has been out since August with a major hamstring injury. "he looks good. We didn’t do a lot, on a Sunday, but he seems to be doing fine," head coach Mark Richt said. My guess is he’ll be ready to go." Richards is the team's top receiver after posting 934 yards last season, the top mark for a freshman in the FBS.
Sep 25 - 10:19 AM

Miami redshirt junior QB Malik Rosier completed 27-of-36 passes for 333 yards and three touchdowns in Saturday's 52-30 win over Toledo.

Rosier unloaded for all three of his touchdown passes in the second half. He's now connected on a trio of scoring tosses in each of Miami's two games this season. We'll have a better idea of his starting mettle once the Canes start to hit tougher competition in conference play. For now, so far so good for the redshirt junior.

Miami junior RB Mark Walton (ankle) rushed for 204 yards and a touchdown on just 11 carries in Saturday's 52-30 win over Toledo.

An odd -- if spectacular -- game for Walton, who sat out a chunk of it after rolling his ankle in the first half. No matter, as he would return in the second half to continue his personal demolition of the Rockets. Walton averaged a meaty 18.54 YPC in the win and ripped off a 44-yard touchdown run to open the game's scoring a few minutes into the first quarter. Miami has played just two games this season, but Walton is already up to 352 yards rushing on the year. He'll try to keep it going against Duke next Friday.

Miami junior RB Mark Walton (ankle) returned in the second half of Saturday's game against Toledo.

Walton was injured in the first half and it looked like he might not return to the contest, but he was ultimately able to make a triumphant comeback after being checked out in the locker room.
Sep 23 - 7:03 PM

Miami junior RB Mark Walton (ankle) remained in the locker room to start the second half of Saturday's game against Toledo.

Walton exited in the first half and has yet to take a carry in the second half. There had been some hope that the junior might be able to play after halftime, but that's looking somewhat unlikely at this juncture. Travis Homer will likely finish out the game in Walton's absence.
Sep 23 - 6:02 PM

Miami junior RB Mark Walton suffered an ankle injury in the first half of Saturday's game against Toledo, but is expected to return to the game.

Walton tweaked his ankle after having his foot stepped on. Looks like he has avoided serious injury, though the Hurricanes might play things cautiously if he shows any signs of ill-health as the game progresses.
Sep 23 - 5:04 PM

Miami sophomore WR Ahmmon Richards (hamstring) is dressed and taking part in warmups in advance of Saturday's game against Toledo.

Richards has been dealing with a severe hamstring pull since the tail end of August camp. He sat out the season-opener, but looks like he will be ready to make his season debut against the Rockets on Saturday barring a late setback.
Sep 23 - 3:00 PM

Miami HC Mark Richt said that sophomore WR Ahmmon Richards is dealing with a "severe pull" of the hamstring.

This is the first time that we've really received any insight into the exact nature of the hamstring injury that has been plaguing Richards since the end of August camp. He sat out the team's season-opener against Bethune-Cookman and, despite Miami not playing either of the last two weekends, remains questionable for Saturday's game against Toledo. While the 6-foot-2, 175-pounder has been able to practice this week, Richt said that he has looked "a little cautious" due to his protecting the injured leg.

Miami sophomore WR Ahmmon Richards (hamstring) is questionable for Saturday's game against Toledo.

Richards initially injured his hamstring at the end of August camp and subsequently sat out the team's season-opening win over Bethune-Cookman. While Miami has not played since September 2 due to a Hurricane Irma-fueled cancellation and a scheduled bye week, Richards has still not healed up fully. Should he be unable to play on Saturday, Lawrence Cager would draw a second start at X-receiver. We'll continue to monitor his progress over the remainder of the practice week.

Miami sophomore WR Ahmmon Richards (hamstring) returned to practice this week.

Richards (6'2/175) did not dress for Saturday's opening win over Bethune-Cookman due to an ankle injury suffered in preseason camp. With Miami canceling their upcoming weekend contest against Arkansas State due to concerns over Hurricane Irma, he'll have another week-plus to heal up before the team next takes the field. The Canes could certainly use him come Week 3 -- they'll be tangoing with Florida State a week from Saturday. Richards posted a 49-943-3 receiving line as a true freshman during the past campaign.
Sep 7 - 5:24 PM

Saturday's game between Miami and Arkansas State has been cancelled and will not be rescheduled this season.

Miami won last weekend's game against Bethune Cookman, meanwhile, Arkansas State lost by seven points to Nebraska. Miami was planning on traveling to the Red Wolves for this contest.
Sep 6 - 10:32 AM

Miami redshirt junior QB Malik Rosier completed 17-of-28 passes for 217 yards and three touchdowns in Saturday's 41-13 win over Bethune-Cookman.

Rosier beat out Evan Shirreffs and N'Kosi Perry for starting honors during preseason camp. He tossed two of his three touchdown passes in the second quarter as Miami began to stretch its legs after a sluggish first stanza. We'll have a better idea of just how well he's able to operate the Canes' offense in a road showdown with Arkansas State next weekend.
Sep 2 - 5:29 PM

Miami junior RB Mark Walton (hip) rushed for 148 yards and two touchdowns on 16 carries in Saturday's 41-13 win over Bethune-Cookman.

Walton scored a pair of short touchdowns in Saturday's breezy opening victory. The 5-foot-9, 195-pounder was dealing with a bit of a bruised hip suffered midway through August camp, but looked no worse for the wear in averaging 9.25 YPC with a long run of 47 yards against Bethune-Cookman. Miami will do battle with Arkansas State next weekend as they take on their first FBS foe of the year.
Sep 2 - 5:17 PM

Miami sophomore WR Ahmmon Richards is not dressed ahead of Saturday's game against Bethune Cookman.

Richards has dealt with a hamstring injury during preseason practices, and the Canes likely think they can get by Bethune Cookman without him. In fact, the team could put bubble wrap around top players until they face FSU in two weeks.
