Canes WR Davon Johnson is out for the season

UM won't just be shorthanded at receiver for Saturday's home finale vs. USF.

Senior receiver Davon Johnson (21 catches, 348 yards, 0 TDs) has had season-ending surgery according to UM. He joins freshmen Robert Lockhart and Malcolm Lewis as receivers who have been lost for the season. Sophomore receiver Rashawn Scott was suspended indefinitely before the Virginia game and remains out.

So, UM is down to Phillip Dorsett, Allen Hurns (fractured thumb), Herb Waters and Kendall Thompkins as the only scholarship receivers who are expected to play Saturday. UM has two other freshman receivers being redshirted

Safety Deon Bush, meanwhile, will miss his second straight game with a shoulder injury. Bush has been battling stingers all season.
