The Miami Hurricanes have listed quarterback Stephen Morris (ankle) as doubtful for Saturday’s game against Florida State on its weekly injury report.
Morris returned to practice Wednesday and “threw stationary passes” according to coach Al Golden while third-year sophomore Ryan Williams ran the offense and freshman Preston Dewey served as the backup. Reporters, who got to see the first 15 minutes of practice Wednesday, saw Morris dropping back and firing passes before the Hurricanes began team drills.
Morris was the only player listed on the injury report this week who has not had season-ending surgery.
Fifth-year senior offensive tackle Ben Jones, who was injured in his only start of the season against N.C. State on Sept. 29, was the newest player listed as having had season-ending surgery. Jones saw action in three games and had started to impress coaches before injuring his knee against the Wolfpack.
• Former quarterback Ken Dorsey, center Brett Romberg and assistant coach Don Soldinger – all part of UM’s last national championship in 2001 – were among seven individuals selected to be enshrined in UM’s Hall of Fame next April.
Other inductees include: Ed Contreras (baseball, 1957-59), Bryan Gillooly (diving, 1994-98), Norm Parsons (administration/coaching, 1972-2012), and Jay Tessmer (baseball, 1994-95).
