VERY QUICK HITS FROM PRACTICE: INJURY NEWS

Just got my 15 minutes in at University of Miami practice.

Here's what I saw:

*Defensive end Shayon Green (right knee) came out in a yellow (limited) jersey and did seem to be practicing. Green, who leads the Hurricanes in tackles with 23, was examined on a sideline table during the Bethune-Cookman game. He previously tore the ACL of that right knee twice while at Miami.

   When we asked him why trainers wrapped that knee in thick bandages during the Bethune game, he said that his regular brace wasn't fitting right. ...?

    However, even if Shayon bruised the knee and it's not really a bad injury, keep in mind that coaches, to be prudent, could be taking precautionary measures by limiting his contact. Makes sense.

* Safety Vaughn Telemaque (left knee) was sidelined for the first part of practice, with the bad knee in what appeared to be an elasticized brace. He did join the others afterward. He was in the usual green jersey for the defensive players.

*Wide receiver Allen Hurns (concussion or previous concussion?) was practicing in a yellow (noncontact) jersey, as was fellow wideout Kendal Thompkins. If you recall, Thompkins was examined on the sideline during the Bethune-Cookman game.

*Defensive back Andrew Swasey and linebacker Raphael Kirby were in red (no contact) jerseys today. Swasey was also injured in the Bethune game.
