Hurricanes release new depth chart before Wake Forest; Waters replaces injured Dorsett as starter

The Miami Hurricanes released a new depth chart Sunday night shortly after learning they've been ranked 7th in the first BCS standings of the year. Here are the changes:

> With the loss of receiver Phillip Dorsett for 4 to 6 weeks with a slight tear of his MCL, sophomore Herb Waters is listed as the starter at the slot receiver and the co-starter with freshman Stacy Coley at the second receiver spot.

> Senior Allen Hurns remains the listed starter at the No. 1 receiver position with sophomore Malcolm Lewis listed as his backup.

> On the defensive side, seniors Justin Renfrow and Curtis Porter are listed as co-starters at defensive tackle.

> Three sets of co-starters occupy Miami's secondary. Sophomores Tracy Howard and Antonio Crawford are co-starters at one cornerback spot, while junior Ladarius Gunter and freshman Artie Burns are co-starters at the other corner position.

The Hurricanes will look for their first 7-0 start since the 2003 season when they host Wake Forest (4-3, 2-2 ACC) at noon Oct. 26 on ESPNU. Fewer than 7,000 tickets remain for the game.
