HURNS BEING EVALUATED
Coach Al Golden reiterated Tuesday that starting receiver Allen Hurns, on the 2012 Biletnikoff Watch List, will definitely not play Saturday against Bethune-Cookman University in Miami’s home opener at Sun Life Stadium.
The junior from Carol City has a concussion. After two games, he leads the team with 10 catches for 113 yards.
“He’s not going to make it for this week,” Golden said. “That’s all I can tell you. He’s being evaluated [Tuesday].”
The Wildcats (2-0), who play in the Football Championship Subdivision, rank fourth in the FCS in turnover margin and are tied for eighth in sacks.
They’re 11th in rushing offense and 16th in total offense.
“Probably 70 percent of their team is from Florida or a good portion from down here,” Golden said. “There’s a connection, and no question they’re coming in with something to prove.”
When asked how close backup right tackle Seantrel Henderson was to catching starter Ereck Flowers or left tackle Malcolm Bunche, Golden said, “He’s knocking on the door. He’s not there yet.”
