Miami Hurricanes receiver Stacy Coley to miss Arkansas State game

The Miami Hurricanes offense will be without one of its most dangerous weapons Saturday when Arkansas State (1-1) visits Sun Life Stadium for a 3:30 p.m. kickoff.

Sophomore receiver Stacy Coley, battling a right shoulder injury, has been ruled out for the game according to UM's injury report which was released Thursday afternoon. He had been in a red non-contact jersey at practice all week.

A dangerous return man, Coley led the team with 1,491 all-purpose yards last season and finished with 33 catches for 591 yards and seven touchdowns. Coley had three catches for nine yards in the opener against Louisville, but didn't start against Florida A&M Saturday or make any catches the Rattlers. Coley did return three punts against Florida A&M -- his last was a 16-yard return late in the first half.

Receiver Rashawn Scott (clavicle) was the only other player listed on UM's injury report. Scott has yet to play this season, but coach Al Golden said Scott could be close to a return soon.
