New offensive line mix?
Coach Al Golden said he is hopeful that he can get Seantrel Henderson, Jeremy Lewis and Ben Jones into the rotation on the offensive line Saturday at Kansas State.
Henderson, who missed nearly all of fall camp, didn’t travel with the team to Boston College. Lewis was the only backup who got into last week’s game.
“I hope he’s ready,” Golden said of Henderson. “He’s only had two full-pads practices with the varsity, so he’s got a long way to go in terms of his conditioning and his technique and everything. Hopefully, he’s staying on top of it mentally, and if he has an opportunity this Saturday, he’ll be ready to go.”
Also looking to make a return is defensive tackle Corey King.
• There was no medical update on defensive tackle Curtis Porter, who is still recovering from his appendectomy and won’t play this week along with freshman linebacker Raphael Kirby (knee). They were the only Hurricanes listed on Thursday’s injury report.
• Although Kansas State doesn’t run the triple option, Golden compared the Wildcats offense to Georgia Tech because of their physicality, discipline and how they strive to eat up the clock.
