Miami Hurricanes make changes along offensive line



The No. 14 Hurricanes (7-1, 3-1 Atlantic Coast Conference) released their newest depth chart Monday for Saturday’s game against Virginia Tech (6-3, 3-2), with some changes along the offensive line.

Seantrel Henderson, a senior, moves back to starting right tackle after being demoted to backup the past three games against Florida State, Wake Forest and North Carolina — and being suspended for the Georgia Tech game.

The 6-8 Henderson replaces senior Brandon Linder, who moves back to his starting right guard position.

At center, senior Jared Wheeler is now listed as a co-starter with former first-team guard Shane McDermott.

Artie Burns replaces the injured Duke Johnson on kick returns. Defensively, Curtis Porter is back as a co-starter at tackle with Justin Renfrow; and Alex Figueroa is a co-starter with Tyron Cornileus at outside linebacker.

• Quarterback Stephen Morris said his right ankle is OK after injuring it briefly on a 9-yard run in the second quarter at Florida State.
