Entering week 11, the Miami football team is getting healthier at running back, while other positions are still impacted by injuries heading into the game on Saturday at Florida State. The Seminoles have a question mark at wide receiver. Florida State was without four top WRs last week versus Pittsburgh.
The Miami defensive line continues to play well despite the losses of edge rushers Nyjalik Kelly and Akheem Mesidor for the season. True freshman Rueben Bain is 11th in the ACC with 8.5 tackles for loss and fourth with 6.5 sacks. The Miami football team has built a solid rotation on the DL around Bain and tackle Leonard Taylor.
Running backs Ajay Allen, Don Chaney Jr., Mark Fletcher and Henry Parrish have all missed games this season. On the Through the Smoke podcast, Miami beat writer David Lake says he expects all four Miami RBs to be healthy versus Florida State. Fletcher carried the load versus North Carolina State with 23 carries for 115 yards.
Miami true freshman offensive lineman Samson Okunlola is out for the season. Also on the injury report are tight end Elijah Arroyo who is listed as questionable and WR Ray Ray Joseph who is listed as probable. Cornerbacks Jaden Davis and Darryl Porter Jr. left the game versus North Carolina State with injuries.
Florida State WRs Keon Coleman, Duece Spann, Hykeem Williams and Johnny Wilson who all missed the game at Pittsburgh last week are listed by TeamRankings.Com as questionable for Miami. Wilson and Williams have missed the last two games. Coleman was reportedly fully participating in practice for FSU this week.
With their depth significantly impacted at WR last week, Ja’Khi Douglas had six receptions for 115 yards. Jordan Travis threw for 360 yards in the 24-7 win over Pittsburgh. Expect some combination of the four FSU WRs who missed last week to play on Saturday. College football teams don’t have to release injury reports.
