A practice update after our second and final viewing period during ball-security drills on Tuesday morning:
Missing from stretch and off to the side on the conditioning bikes: Starting safety Sheldrick Redwine, who left the Florida State game late in the third quarter; starting cornerback Dee Delaney, who had his first interception on Saturday; All-American receiver Ahmmon Richards, who possibly reinjured his previously pulled hamstring; and freshman right guard Navaughn Donaldson, who was hurt (right leg) on the same fourth-quarter play as star running back Mark Walton.
So, with Walton out for the season (ankle surgery), that makes five starters not on the field today — at least during our early viewing.
Donaldson is wearing a large black boot on his right leg and is pedaling with his left leg. And Delaney is pedaling with his left leg.
Never miss a local story.
Senior Braxton Berrios, who was named ACC Receiver of the Week on Monday for his impressive performance against the Seminoles, was with the receivers wearing a green, noncontact jersey. He had what appeared to be a black, elasticized sleeve over his left leg that came up to his knee.
Also: the running back order at practice: Travis Homer, Trayone Gray, walk-on Crispian Atkins and freshman DeeJay Dallas, who has been a receiver for UM until now.
Coming up to face the No. 11 Hurricanes (4-0, 2-0 Atlantic Coast Conference) at 3:30 p.m. Saturday at Hard Rock Stadium: Coastal Division nemesis Georgia Tech (3-1, 2-0). The game will be broadcast on ABC.
