In a game where it seemed like the Miami Hurricane defenders were dropping like flies, it appears that S Deon Bush will be okay.
Bush, who appeared to have been battling a shoulder injury after laying a lick on VT RB J.C. Coleman, left the game in the second quarter and did not return.
Bush sent the following tweet out to his concerned fans:
Bush’s hit on Coleman drew a flag and the ‘Canes were flagged 15-yards for a helmet-to-helmet hit. Stevie Wonder could have seen that Bush’s hit was legal, and the ACC officials are continued to be scrutinized by fans and players alike.
The following is from Manny Navarro of the Miami Herald:
Head coach Al Golden on S Deon Bush’s injury: “Deon’s been struggling with some stingers. We’ll evaluate him, but I think the best thing to do was to shut him down..”
LB Denzel Perryman also left the game with what appeared to be an ankle injury. Perryman was later shown on the sidelines accompanied with trainers who were taping his ankle up, however, after halftime Perryman was donning a sweat suit and a walking boot.
Perryman, who was listed as “probable” against VT, seems to have re-aggravated his ankle.
Also from Manny Navarro of the Miami Herald:
Al Golden on Denzel Perryman: “Denzel just wasn’t quite right. We’ll put him back in a boot, and hopefully in nine days he’ll be ready in Charlotesville.”
Miami (5-4, 4-2 ACC) will travel to Charlettesville to face Virginia (2-6, 0-4 ACC) in an ACC Coastal match-up on Nov. 10.
