Kelvin Cain, the 6-3, 230-pound junior defensive end who left the team earlier this month for personal reasons, has returned to practice and is back on the roster.
Cain played in UM’s first seven games and had 11 tackles and one sack. He had not appeared on UM’s depth chart, though, since before the Notre Dame game.
“It’s personal,” coach Al Golden said. “He has been reinstated. He sorted some things out, so I’m happy for the young man. Good to see him back out here today.”
This and that
• Golden said he didn’t have updates on the statuses of linebacker Denzel Perryman (ankle) and safety Deon Bush (stingers). “Denzel, we’re protecting. He’ll see the doctor again [Monday]. … Hopefully, he’s on track.” He said Bush was seeing the doctor Monday afternoon. Bush was still listed as a first-team safety on the newest depth chart released Monday.
• Freshmen Gabe Perry and Duke Johnson were named ACC Specialist and Rookie of the Week, respectively, the league announced Monday.
• The depth chart had a few changes. Seantrel Henderson is now by himself at first-team right tackle, with Ereck Flowers behind him. A.J. Highsmith has returned to first-team safety. And Perryman, likely because of his injury, is now a co-first-team outside linebacker with Gionni Paul.
