The Hurricanes returned to practice Tuesday at Greentree Field, and with them preparing for North Carolina (8-1, 5-0 Atlantic Coast Conference) were the five players who were injured — some temporarily — during the victory on Saturday against Virginia.
Defensive tackles Courtel Jenkins and Anthony Moten, defensive end Ufomba Kamalu, linebacker Trent Harris and offensive tackle Trevor Darling all practiced.
Darling, who left the game in the third quarter with what interim head coach Larry Scott said was a “big bruise on top of his foot,” also was back.
Additionally, freshman receiver Lawrence Cager, has a “slight ankle sprain,” Scott said.
Never miss a local story.
▪ Defensive coordinator Mark D’Onofrio said starting cornerback Artie Burns, who sat on the bench in street clothes Saturday, will play at UNC. Burns’ mother, Dana Smith, died two weeks ago.
“Yeah, he’s in,’’ D’Onofrio said. “He’s ready to go. That was his decision [to sit out] and we all told him we support him and there was going to be a time when he was going to have to take care of himself. …We had his back. The guys stepped up and we won the game. We’re excited to have him back.”
