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.
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.
