The Hurricanes returned to practice Tuesday, four days before their noon game at Pittsburgh, and here’s some of what we saw in the 20 or so minutes open to the media at Greentree Field:
▪ N’Kosi Perry, who offensive coordinator Dan Enos said separated his shoulder — the left one — in the loss to the Yellow Jackets, was out there on Greentree taking snaps. Perry briefly left the game before returning. Perry finished 16 of 28 with 188 yards and two touchdowns, while playing through injury for most of the second half. The redshirt sophomore also ran for a touchdown in the first half.
▪ Jarren Williams, who has battled a right shoulder injury of his own since Miami’s win against the Central Michigan Chippewas, also practiced. Williams entered early in the third quarter Saturday when Perry was briefly sidelined and played less than one series.
▪ Receiver/quarterback Tate Martell was working as the third-string quarterback during practice.
▪ Starting running back DeeJay Dallas, a junior, was not at practice. Tuesday. Dallas sustained what appeared to be a knee injury at 9:14 Saturday in the first quarter of UM’s loss at home to Georgia Tech. He limped off the field and didn’t return to the game.
