One day after the University of Miami reported that quarterback Jake Heaps sat out of the Hurricanes’ second scrimmage at Greentree Field “to rest his arm,’’ Heaps told ESPN.com in a phone interview that “everything is fine.’’

“I’m feeling good about everything, and just excited to get to practice Wednesday,’’ Heaps told ESPN.com on Tuesday. “They haven’t given us a timetable on a decision. They’ve kept everything pretty close to the vest, which I think is good because it just allows us to focus on every day and not worry about where we stand in certain points in time.

“We’re approaching Louisville here quickly, so I would imagine something would come in the near future, but I’m not concerned about that.’’

Heaps, a graduate transfer who is battling freshman quarterback Brad Kaaya for the starting job in the Sept. 1 opener at Louisville, told ESPN.com that he’d be “extremely disappointed’’ if he doesn’t win the competition, but added that “at the end of the day, I don’t regret anything. I’ve gone out and done everything that I could and laid it all on the line.’’

• The Canes did not practice Tuesday and will be back to work Wednesday for a two-a-day session. Selected coaches and players, including Heaps, are expected to be available to the media after practice ends in the early evening.
