Wednesday Practice Report

Good news regarding QB Kyle Wright's injured ankle could be on the horizon.  Coach Randy Shannon said  that Wright was able to complete three-fourths of Wednesday's practice work and could have a chance to play this Saturday if his health continues to improve.  Wright said he is still experiencing pain at times on his ankle and on his knee, but he will try his best to be ready for N.C. State.

- Freshman DB Doug Wiggins has not been with the team for almost a week, Coach Shannon said Wednesday.  Wiggins, who has been rumored to be interested in transferring, has been dealing with personal issues according to Shannon.  I'm still trying to reach Doug's high school coach, and hope to have more info later this evening.  Shannon said Wiggins is still on the team at Miami.

- I spoke with Freshman LB Allen Bailey about his role on the team this season.  Bailey, who was recruited as a linebacker, said he wants to continue to play at the linebacker spot, and is not yet ready or willing to move to the defensive line.

- I'll have audio interviews with Shannon, Wright, Bailey, Defensive Line Coach Clint Hurt, and Cornerback DeMarcus Van Dyke up on our site later this evening.
