UM football gets some players back Tuesday at practice

After a disheartening week of practice injury-wise following the University of Miami’s victory at Florida State, the situation seemed to be improving Tuesday.

Here are the basics after about 15 total minutes (in two separate periods) of media viewing:

▪ Safety Sheldrick Redwine (upper extremity), who came out of the FSU game in the third quarter and missed the Georgia Tech game this past Saturday, was back on the field seemingly full-go.

▪ Wide receiver Ahmmon Richards, who did not play Saturday because coach Mark Richt said he still wasn’t fully ready to compete with that nagging hamstring injury, was practicing seemingly full-go.

▪ The linebackers were far away from us, but it appeared that weak-side starter Michael Pinckney, who left the game with a chest injury in the second quarter this past Saturday and didn’t return to the field, was practicing in a green, no-contact jersey. He was not doing drills that would require his chest to be pounded.

▪ Guard Navaughn Donaldson (right ankle sprain), who was injured in the fourth quarter at Florida State and didn’t play Saturday, was not wearing the boot we saw last seek but was sidelined.

▪ Cornerback Dee Delaney (right knee), who did not play this past game, was sidelined.

▪ Receiver Braxton Berrios again was in a green, non-contact jersey Tuesday, but practicing. This, like last week, is likely precautionary to preserve his body and let any bruises heel.
