Miami Hurricanes receiver Rashawn Scott will return

Hurricanes receiver Rashawn Scott, who had been running with the first team before injuring his shoulder/clavicle in Wednesday’s scrimmage, should be back at some point this season, coach Al Golden said.

“It’s not a season-ending deal,” Golden said. “It’s a little bit of an exotic injury, something that’s not customary. But he’s doing good. He’ll keep his conditioning up so he can return to action quickly.”

• Starting weak-side linebacker Raphael Kirby (undisclosed injury) and cornerback Artie Burns (right foot) were in red non-contact jerseys Friday. Golden said neither injury is serious and he expects both players back soon.

• Defensive coordinator Mark D’Onofrio said the season-ending injury to safety Rayshawn Jenkins doesn’t necessarily mean one of their two freshmen will be forced into duty.

“[Senior cornerback] Ladarius Gunter played some safety before,” he said. “He can get us out of a jam. Right now he’s playing so well at corner. But last year played safety particularly on third down. But he’s done it.”
