Hurricanes quarterback Stephen Morris, who has a bone bruise on his right ankle, was back participating at practice Tuesday. He was seen tossing the ball lightly at the start of practice and was gingerly adding more pressure to his footwork.
“Stephen did well,” coach Al Golden said. “Was it 100 percent? No. Did he do everything? No. But he did a lot. He must have thrown 40 balls [Tuesday] in team periods. And he threw it well. He’s transferring his weight well. I didn’t even know he was going to do that.”
In other injury-related news, center Shane McDermott attended practice and will start being integrated Wednesday. … OG Danny Isidora (broken foot, surgery) was back “moving around” at practice without a boot, Golden said. He will walk for a couple days, then jog, but will be brought along slowly. … WR Rashawn Scott (shoulder/collarbone) hasn’t been wearing a sling and will soon start running, Golden said.
Rusty but happy
Sophomore safety Deon bush, who played in his first game since hernia surgery in June, admitted that he was a bit rusty but was nonetheless thrilled to be back.
“It’s tough, but everybody goes through adversity in life,’’ he said. “It’s not really what you go through, it’s how you bounce back.’’
