Coming into the final week of Spring practice and a few days off of Saturday’s scrimmage the injuries are continuing to pile up for the Miami Hurricanes. On top of Brevin Jordan, Corey Gaynor, Amari Cooper, Waynmon Steed, Zach McCloud, and others we learned today that WRs Jeff Thomas and Brian Hightower have both had minor surgical procedures on their knees and no return date has been set. These injuries will surely lead to somewhat of a depleted roster for Canes fans attending Saturday’s upcoming Spring game. Helmets and shorts today in kind of a dialed down practice but a few notes below.
– Coach Enos said that QB Tate Martell has his best practice to date today after struggling in the last scrimmage. He also said that there will not be a starting QB announced until the Fall.
– 5* TE Darnell Washington attended today’s practice.
– OL Kai Leon Herbert says he is healthy for the first time since being at Miami.
-The OL is still looking for the right combination and also healing from injuries but CMD says there will be no starters named here until after the Summer when the staff sees who shows up to work for workouts, etc.
– DE Patrick Joyner is starting to get some looks at LB as DC Blake Baker tries to find some depth there.
