The University of Miami received some good news today, at least in regards to the football team.
QB Stephen Morris was out on the practice field this morning, albeit limited–at least according to the head coach.
Morris, who suffered a sprained ankle against North Carolina, was among his teammates on Greentree Field on Wednesday afternoon. Head coach Al Golden said that Morris was extremely limited and was only throwing the ball. The coach downplayed Morris’ injury saying that he was unable to drop back, however, the Miami Herald is reporting that Morris was in fact able to drop back–and did–several times.
Morris’ ankle was not visibly wrapped and he was seen encouraging backup QB Ryan Williams. When practice ended, Morris reportedly jogged off of the field with the rest of the squad. Throughout practice, he was seen zipping the ball to WR Rashawn Scott and WR Kendal Thompkins.
Golden said that Morris’ ankle is still swollen but he is continuing to make progress.
Morris will be a game time decision against rival Florida State and as of now, the ‘Canes are practicing as if Williams will get the nod.
