UM interim coach Larry Scott said quarterbacks Brad Kaaya (concussion) and Malik Rosier (undisclosed) practiced but were limited Tuesday in Miami’s first day back at Greentree Field after the victory at Duke.

Scott said both were “questionable” for Saturday’s home game against Virginia.

“This is one of the final pieces to the [concussion] protocol,” Scott said of Kaaya. “He looked good, but the doctors are evaluating that situation closely. We’ll follow their feedback.”

Scott said Rosier “did a little bit” but is “still getting through some soreness. We should know better definitely by [Wednesday] on Malik.’’

Sophomore transfer Vincent Testaverde “would probably be the next guy to go in” after Kaaya and Rosier, the coach said. Testaverde, the son of 1986 UM Heisman Trophy winner Vinny Testaverde, is a walk-on who played in one game last season for Texas Tech.

Missing practice Tuesday was defensive end Chad Thomas, whom Scott said was “a little banged up’’ but expects to play Saturday.
