Miami sophomore RB Joe Yearby did his best to keep the school competitive against Cincinnati, rushing for 113 yards and a touchdown on 17 carries.

Yearby added two receptions for a minimal gain. Yearby is the school's most consistent performer outside of quarterback Brad Kaaya. He's averaging 7.3 yards per carry and has a market share of 61 percent of the school's rushing yards. Miami faces FSU next.

Miami sophomore QB Brad Kaaya completed 24 of 39 attempts for 255 yards in the school's 34-23 loss to Cincinnati.

Al Golden's time as Miami coach seems to be drawing to a close. Kaaya and the Canes failed to convert in critical moments: Allowing a sack on 3rd & 10 and then failing near the endzone on fourth down. Kaaya is an efficient passer who does take downfield arching shots. The Canes do not have a go-to receiver in the passing game and their most consistent production comes from running back Joe Yearby. Now 3-1, Miami faces FSU next.

Miami sophomore WR Braxton Berrios (knee) has been cleared to play Thursday against Cincinnati.

Berrios returned to practice on Sunday. "I'm back," Berrios said. "Feel good." Berrios injured his left knee on the opening possession of the opener. His return comes at a good time, because the Hurricanes will be without Stacy Coley against the Bearcats. Berrios is QB Brad Kaaya's best friend. "He's still a quick-twitch guy, still fast, runs some good routes," Kaaya said. "With him, he's an easy guy to throw to. It shouldn't be an issue. All the routes that he's run so far, we've connected on pretty well."

Miami junior WR Stacy Coley has already been ruled out for Thursday's game with a hamstring injury.

Coley missed the Canes' second game and did not record a catch in the third. Hamstring injuries usually recur, and it appears Coley suffered a re-injury. Coley's stats have declined since his freshman season.

Miami LB Jermaine Grace left Saturday's game against Nebraska with an undisclosed injury and didn't return.

The Hurricanes, as is their right, have not updated the status on his condition. Fortunately, they have a bye coming up. They need Grace healthy, because Miami is already playing without Darrion Owens (knee).

Updating a previous report, Miami has confirmed that sophomore LB Marques Gayot sustained a neck injury after a head-to-head collision in Wednesday's practice.

Gayot was airlifted to a local hospital this morning. Fortunately, the school announced the injury doesn’t appear to be serious. Gayot will be placed in a neck collar and released Thursday. Gayot appeared in six games last season as a true freshman. He had 2.5 TFL and 1.5 sacks in the opener against Bethune-Cookman.

An unidentified Miami player was airlifted to a local hospital after a head-to-head collision with a teammate on Wednesday.

"A University of Miami football student-athlete suffered an injury during practice and was transported to the hospital for precautionary reasons," the school wrote in a press release. Head coach Al Golden was scheduled to take part in a news conference but canceled due to "a situation." We'll update you when more information becomes available.

Miami will be changing the warped font on their jerseys.

Today's "In Lighter News!" story of the day: After several weeks of employing a strange, strange font that appeared to contain backward letters and letters that barely looked like letters (possibly an Illuminati code?), Miami's Adidas jerseys will be undergoing a font change. Your move, Louisville.

Miami sophomore QB Brad Kaaya said HC Al Golden wants his players to be consistent like a McDonald's cheeseburger.

"Be a McDonald's cheeseburger," Kaaya said of the message. "A McDonald's cheeseburger is the same. Everyone buys it because it's consistent. It's the same thing every time. It's always good, tastes the same way. Be a cheeseburger." The Hurricanes play a bit mechanical at times, allowing inferior teams to hang around. This past weekend, they blew a 33-10 lead in the fourth quarter before finally putting away Nebraska. Perhaps a spicier metaphor would better suit the talented Canes, whose playmakers should be given latitude to freelance.

Miami sophomore WR Braxton Berrios (knee) was not at practice on Tuesday.

No huge surprise here. Berrios injured his left knee in the season-opener against Bethune-Cookman, when QB Brad Kaaya threw a pass behind the receiver and he twisted his leg. He's been rehabbing the injury, but isn't at the point where practice is on the radar. The 5-foot-9, 180-pound sophomore will almost certainly miss this Saturday's showdown with Nebraska, with a possible return in the cards against Cincinnati on October 1 or Florida State on October 15.
Sep 15 - 3:43 PM

Miami junior WR Stacy Coley (hamstring) was able to practice without issue on Tuesday.

Coley re-aggravated a left hamstring injury in the team's season-opener against Bethune-Cookman. He subsequently missed Friday's contest with FAU, but said that he was able to run at 100% in Tuesday's practice. The 6-foot-1, 185-pound junior admitted that the leg had been nagging him throughout the summer. QB Brad Kaaya called him a "good weapon to have back." Last year, he caught 23 passes for 184 yards and no touchdowns. The speedster should see an expanded role in the offense once he returns healthy, as Phillip Dorsett is no longer around to stretch the field. The Hurricanes host Nebraska this Saturday.
Sep 15 - 3:30 PM

Miami sophomore LB Darrion Owens will miss the remainder of the 2015 season due to a knee injury.

Specifics of the injury were not given to the media, but Owens is expected to undergo surgery. He suffered the season-ender in the first quarter of Friday's win over FAU. The 6-foot-3, 247-pound sophomore should be eligible to take a medical redshirt this season. As a true freshman, he recorded 23 tackles.
Sep 14 - 3:06 PM

Miami sophomore QB Brad Kaaya completed 21 of 32 attempts for 287 yards and a touchdown in the school's 44-20 win over FAU.

A large portion of Kayya's yards were picked up after the catch, but the quarterback fits the mold of an efficient, normally accurate passer. Those traits set up added yards after the catch. Expect Kaaya to continue to produce numbers this season despite the threat of a "down" year for Miami.
Sep 12 - 9:15 AM

Miami sophomore RB Joe Yearby rushed for 146 yards and a touchdown on 18 carries in the school's 44-20 win over FAU.

He added another 97 yards and a touchdown on just three catches. Many wondered who would fill in for Duke Johnson this season, and the answer is absolutely Yearby. The running back shined out of the backfield as a receiver, picking up yards after the catch on angle routes. It helps to have a composed quarterback like Brad Kaaya who trusts his checkdown.

Miami redshirt senior WR Rashawn Scott needs to continue to show signs of developing maturity and discipline, according to HC Al Golden.

"Time will tell. [Scott]’s on the right track," said Golden. The 6-foot-2, 203-pound redshirt senior caught six passes (on seven targets) for 100 yards and a touchdown in the team's season-opening win over Bethune-Cookman. Scott also dropped a pass, though, one of six drops on the day for the Hurricanes. WRC Kevin Beard said that he was "very disappointed" in the lapses of focus on catchable balls. With receivers Stacy Coley (hamstring) and Braxton Berrios (knee) not expected to play in Friday's showdown with Florida Atlantic, Scott and TE Standish Dobard figure to see plenty of targets.
