The news coming out of Coral Gables is that starting QB Stephen Morris, who left Saturday's game against Savannah State in the first quarter with an ankle injury, will be ready to play this week. Morris described his ankle as feeling good and seemed confident that he would be suiting up for the team's trip to Tampa. Although an ankle sprain was feared, head coach Al Golden called the injury a bone bruise.
For a Miami team that is off to a 3-0 start and in the middle of a program resurgence, the handling of this injury will be crucial. It is unlikely Al Golden will keep Morris in for the entire game against the 0-3 Bulls. Ryan Williams has proved a capable backup and the Hurricanes will want to make sure Morris is completely healthy before they enter conference play for the rest of the season.
