Miami freshman RB Lorenzo Lingard (knee) will undergo surgery.

Lingard (6'0/195) injured his left knee in practice on Monday. The exact nature of his knee injury is not public knowledge, but it should be noted that the team has not yet ruled him out for the campaign. Miami's statement on the surgery indicated that a recovery timetable would be formulated following the procedure. The five-star freshman has already played in six games, so out of luck on a redshirt, here, barring a medical hardship waiver or the like. Lingard has flashed for 136 yards and a pair of touchdowns on just 17 carries this season, but has not received a touch since Sept. 22. Count it as a depth blow for the Hurricanes. Travis Homer and DeeJay Dallas have been working as Miami's top two backs this year, and will continue to do so moving forward.

Miami freshman WR Brian Hightower (undisclosed) will not play on Friday against Boston College.

The hope is that Hightower will be able to play on November 3 against Duke. This will make two straight games that the four-star recruit will have missed for the Hurricanes, who have been hit hard by injuries to their skill-position players in 2018.

Miami freshman RB Lorenzo Lingard picked up an injury to his left knee during Monday's practice.

Lingard left the practice on crutches and a bandage on his left knee. The five-star recruit hasn't played much this season with Travis Homer and DeeJay Dallas getting the majority of carries so far. The Hurricanes play on Friday against Boston College, and there's a very good chance that Lingard won't be available for that game.

Miami redshirt senior QB Malik Rosier practiced with the first-team on Monday.

HC Mark Richt announced last week that Rosier would start Friday night at Boston College. N'Kosi Perry, meanwhile, worked with the second-team on Monday. Frankly, this situation is a mess. It's hard to know how it will play out going forward, but it's clear that Richt's confidence in his quarterback room is at an all-time low.

Pro Football Focus lists Miami junior DE Joe Jackson and sophomore Jonathan Garvin as the second best edge rushing combination in college football.

The only duo that ranks higher than Jackson and Garvin is the superstar tandem of Rashan Gary and Chase Winovich at Michigan. The Miami duo has been outstanding, with Jackson being the star in terms of rushing the passer with 28 quarterback pressures and five sacks. Garvin has been a quality rusher himself, and has one of the best run defenders on the edge. Jackson (6'5/265) could be an NFL player next year, while Garvin (6'4/235) is a player to watch for the 2020 class.

Miami redshirt freshman QB N'Kosi Perry has been benched for Malik Rosier.

This is a tough one to figure from the outside. Against FBS teams this year, Rosier is only 42-of-84 (50.0%) for 650 yards and 3/3 TD/INT rate. Perry hasn't exactly lit the world on fire, and he reportedly has had issues grasping the entire playbook, but it's hard to buy the argument that he's a short-term downgrade on what Rosier has shown himself to be. Either way, the writing now seems to be on the wall for Perry's eventual departure. To pull the plug after a mere three starts isn't just to make a short-term indictment on Perry, it's tipping your hand that your long-term plans may not prominently include him (otherwise, why bench him after three games, risking a transfer, for proven veteran mediocrity you'd previously benched?). Perry will back up Rosier next week against Boston College. Richt says he'll still see the field off the bench.

Miami HC Mark Richt announced that redshirt senior QB Malik Rosier will start next week against Boston College.

Miami is on bye this week before traveling to BC a week from Friday. "Right this minute I think Malik is better equipped from his ability and his experiences to lead this team," Richt said. Rosier started the first four games of the year before he was benched for redshirt freshman N'Kosi Perry during the FIU game. Perry started the last three games but Richt pulled the plug on him last week against Virginia after he threw two interceptions in his first six attempts. The Hurricanes lost 16-13, with Rosier not exactly lighting the world on fire (12-of-23 for 171 yards with an interception). For whatever it's worth, Richt says Perry will continue to see the field off the bench. Either way, this situation is a mess.

Miami redshirt senior QB Malik Rosier completed 12-of-23 passes for 171 yards with an interception in a 16-13 loss on Saturday to Virginia.

This was a horrific offensive effort from the Hurricanes, one that is going to bring an awful lot of questions in the coming weeks. Rosier replaced N'Kosi Perry after the redshirt freshman threw two picks in just six attempts, and while the senior was better, it was only because it would have been hard to get worse. We'll see if Rosier did enough to earn a start on October 26 against Boston College, because Miami has a bye next week.

Miami redshirt senior QB Malik Rosier replaced an ineffective N'Kosi Perry during the second quarter of Saturday's game at Virginia.

Rosier, who was replaced by Perry as Miami's starter ahead of the team's September 22 win over Florida International, gets another chance to lead the Hurricane offense. Perry completed 3-of-6 passes for 20 yards and two interceptions during the first half of Saturday's game, with Miami trailing 10-0 at the time when HC Mark Richt decided to make the change in search of a spark.
Oct 13 - 8:10 PM

Miami senior CB Michael Jackson was ejected in the first half of Saturday's game at Virginia for targeting.

Since the penalty occurred during the first half Jackson will not have to sit out a portion of Miami's October 26 game against Boston College. As for the remainder of Saturday's matchup, Miami will now have to make do without its best cornerback.
Oct 13 - 7:49 PM

Miami redshirt junior LB Charles Perry is no longer listed on the roster.

No reason was given for his departure. Perry appeared in four games this season and 34 games total during his Hurricanes career.
Oct 13 - 11:01 AM

Miami HC Mark Richt said he's "pretty sure" sophomore WR Jeff Thomas (knee) will return for Saturday's game against Virginia.

Backing him up, Thomas has practiced all week and is listed as the starting slot receiver on the depth chart. Thomas was knocked out of last Saturday's game against Florida State with a hyperextended left knee after he was pulled down by the facemask on a punt return. Mike Harley is his backup.
Oct 11 - 3:07 PM

Miami redshirt senior DT Gerald Willis (finger) took part in practice on Tuesday.

Willis (6'4/300) injured his finger in Saturday's win over Florida State. During Tuesday's open-viewing window for the media, he was spotted on a conditioning bike to start. He later joined up with his teammates for drill work. Consider him day-to-day for the Hurricanes' Week 7 date with Virginia.
Oct 9 - 3:32 PM

Miami redshirt freshman QB Cade Weldon has three games left on a four-game suspension.

The Hurricanes would only offer that Weldon was suspended due to a violation of team rules. The 6-foot-3, 220-pounder was actually serving out the first game of that suspension against Florida State on Saturday, with the information only now coming to light. He'll likewise be grounded for upcoming games against Virginia, Boston College and Duke. The redshirt freshman will be eligible to return -- assuming Miami does not extend the suspension beyond that quartet of contests -- against Georgia Tech on Nov. 10. True freshman Jarren Williams will slide up to QB3 behind N'Kosi Perry and Malik Rosier while Weldon serves out the remainder of his punishment.
Oct 9 - 3:10 PM

Miami sophomore WR Jeff Thomas (knee) practiced on Tuesday.

"He did not appear to be limited in any way during individual drills," noted the Sun-Sentinel. Thomas left Saturday's game against Florida State with a hyperextended left knee after he was injured while getting pulled down by the facemask on a punt return. Miami HC Mark Richt actually said after the game there was a point he wondered if Thomas would be lost for the season. Luckily, that won't be the case.
