Canes’ Al Golden says Stephen Morris’ outlook is good



Coach Al Golden sounded optimistic after practice Wednesday that quarterback Stephen Morris would play Saturday at USF despite not being 100 percent recovered from his injured right ankle. Morris sustained a bone bruise early in last week’s blowout victory over Savannah State.

“He was good — did more [Wednesday] than [Tuesday],” Golden said. “It’s still three days out. I don’t suspect it will be an issue.”

The outlook on center Shane McDermott (foot) is less positive, but Golden said he has not been ruled out for Saturday’s game.

Not taking USF lightly

Golden, as he has done all week, reinforced his stance that UM is not taking Saturday’s game against the winless Bulls lightly and that the opponent doesn’t affect decisions regarding injuries.

“Records don’t matter,” Golden said. “If Stephen can go, he’ll go. And right now, he’s going.”
