UM QB Wright sidelined

University of Miami Quarterback Kyle Wright came to practice Sunday morning wearing an elasticized brace on his left knee.

Wright, a senior, was noticeably limping. He did not participate in the stretching and running drills that the other players do before the main part of practice begins.

Wright, who missed the last four games of last season while recuperating from thumb surgery, is battling with fellow quarterback Kirby Freeman for the starting spot.

The media is allowed only to watch the first twenty-five minutes of practice.

The Hurricanes begin the season Sept. 1 in the Orange Bowl against Marshall.
