Miami Hurricanes’ Phillip Dorsett, Artie Burns appear doubtful for Saturday

Although he has been hoping to get 2012 leading receiver Phillip Dorsett (torn MCL) back soon, UM coach Al Golden said Wednesday both Dorsett and freshman cornerback Artie Burns (ankle) appear doubtful for Saturday's home finale against Virginia.

Neither player has been fully integrated into practice this week, Golden said.

“If he feels good we're going to give it a run, but it's not where it needs to be right now,” Golden said of Dorsett, who has missed four games after injuring his knee Oct.17 at North Carolina. “Until he can become integrated, avoid guys and make guys miss and protect himself, we're not going to put him out there.”

• Receiver Herb Waters (groin), who was injured against Duke, “has a chance” to play Saturday, Golden said. Golden lists Waters as probable.

• Receiver Stacy Coley and freshman cornerback Corn Elder, who were in a noncontact jerseys earlier this week at practice, are expected to play, Golden said.
