Miami Hurricanes’ Rashawn Scott back in the fold

WEB VOTE Who ended up looking the worst in the UM investigation by the NCAA?

Despite leaving Chapel Hill, N.C., eight days ago licking its wounds, the University of Miami (6-0, 2-0 Atlantic Coast Conference) heads into Saturday’s game against visiting Wake Forest (4-3, 2-2) relatively healthy and with receiver Rashawn Scott back in the mix.

Scott, UM’s second-leading receiver last season, hasn’t played since injuring his shoulder while make a diving catch in the opener against FAU. But after appearing as doubtful for last week’s game, Scott wasn’t listed at all on UM’s injury report Thursday, a welcome return considering Phillip Dorsett will be out at least four to six weeks with a partial tear of his MCL.

“What a great opportunity,” UM coach Al Golden said Monday, before players and coaches were put off limits to the media after the news of the NCAA investigation broke.

“Instead of getting behind, now he’s thrust back into it. He’s got to work on his conditioning in the next 48 hours so he can recover in time for the game. We really have to push him. But he should give us a boost there.”

Running back Duke Johnson (migraine/concussion) and quarterback Stephen Morris (ankle) did not appear on the injury report. Only safety Kacy Rodgers (ankle) was listed as probable. Offensive lineman Danny Isidora (foot) and Dorsett (knee) are the only players listed as out.
