The Hurricanes (7-3, 3-3 Atlantic Coast Conference), who were off Monday, released a new depth chart late Sunday night for the noon home game Saturday against Virginia (2-8, 0-6).
Receiver Phillip Dorsett is back after sustaining a knee injury at North Carolina on Oct. 17. He is listed behind Stacy Coley “or’’ Herb Waters, with an “or’’ between Waters and Dorsett.
Sophomore Tyriq McCord is listed as the co-starter with Thurston Armbrister at strong-side linebacker.
Sophomore Deon Bush has jumped ahead of A.J. Highsmith at safety, and sophomore Earl Moore is the backup to Curtis Porter at defensive tackle.
Freshman Al-Quadin Muhammad is now the backup to defensive end Shayon Green, as is co-backup David Gilbert. Freshman safety Jamal Carter is the backup to Rayshawn Jenkins or Kacy Rodgers. Freshman cornerback Corn Elder is the backup to Ladarius Gunter or Artie Burns.
Still in the hunt
Apparently, out of 32 scenarios in which four teams can still win the Atlantic Coast Conference’s Coastal Division, Miami has a shot in two of those 32 scenarios, according to Syracuse.com writer Patrick Stevens. The Canes need to win out, and have Virginia beat Virginia Tech and UNC beat Duke.
