University of Miami safety Deon Bush, who sustained a hamstring injury in last Saturday’s loss to FSU, was listed Thursday as doubtful for Saturday’s game at Virginia.

Sophomore Jamal Carter got most of Bush’s work in the fourth quarter against FSU at safety alongside former walk-on Nantambu Fentress. Bush ranks third on the team with 48 tackles and is tied for the lead nationally with five forced fumbles. He had an interception and a forced fumble against FSU.

Meanwhile, defensive end Anthony Chickillo, who injured his knee on the same play as Bush, was not listed on the injury report Thursday, meaning he will definitely play against the Cavaliers. Chickillo missed practice Monday and Tuesday but returned Wednesday.

▪ Backup offensive lineman Alex Gall, who last played against North Carolina (according to UM’s participation chart), has been ruled out.
