Interim head coach Larry Scott did not divulge any new information on the status of quarterback Brad Kaaya (concussion) and receiver Rashawn Scott (possible shoulder) for Saturday’s game at No. 22 Duke.
“Both those guys are following the protocol of our doctors,” Scott said on Hurricane Hotline. “They’re on top of it and they’re going to make those assessments and we’re going to follow the protocol through the week. Obviously we would love to have both of those guys, however the No. 1 concern is always the players and their health is first.”
The backup plan for quarterback would be to use Malik Rosier, a redshirt freshman who struggled in his first substantial playing time against Clemson when Kaaya got hurt last Saturday.
