« Canes basketball announces four new signees; class rated 23rd nationally by Scout.com | Main | Talking Canes-Duke with Blue Devil Nation »

Dorsett listed as doubtful on Canes injury report, sign he could be back soon

When Hurricanes 2012 leading-receiver Phillip Dorsett went down in a heap of pain Oct. 17 at North Carolina it looked ugly. A partially torn medial collateral ligament had him on crutches and was going to keep him out about four-to-six weeks.

Thursday, though, there was a pleasant surprise in UM's injury report when Dorsett was upgraded from out to doubtful for Saturday's game at Duke, a sign he could be ready to come back soon.

The Miami Herald learned last week Dorsett had been catching passes at practice. Quarterback Stephen Morris said Tuesday Dorsett was wearing a yellow non-contact jersey and was in pads at practice this week. But Morris also said Dorsett "has not been running or anything."

"I hope he's close. I really don't know the extent of how close," Morris said. "But I know whenever I'm in the treatment room he's always in there with me. He's doing a lot of good things. I know [trainer] Vinnie [Scavo] is really excited for him."

It's more likely Dorsett could be ready for the home finale against Virginia a week from Saturday.

> As expected, backup linebacker Alex Figueroa (shoulder) has been ruled out of Saturday's game at Duke.

Golden Casualties:

it doesn't matter whos fault it is.....what matters is perform or hit the bricks......

im my world thats the bench mark....."i lost money for the firm 3 years in a row.....it was not my fault"
your history pal.....go home and play with your kids......at this point with a mature,bigger, senior team....those are goldens words.....UM fails

cant hide behind low life wins against pathetic teams.....the rubber has net the road......I have always said......these 2 got to go....UM will NEVER succeed under them....lets see who right......just like the dolphins......

So rather than fix your lies, you DOUBLED DOWN on your lies. These were also false. Poor name-changing fellow, you are stuck with trying to slip lies past people, but fail every time.

Your "additions" were laughable.

-------

Terry Richardson - RB coach
He moved UP to the NFL! How is that a casualty?

Jedd Fisch - Offensive coordinator
He moved UP to the NFL! How is that a casualty?

Geroge Mcdonald - WR coach -- (You mean George?)
He moved UP to be the OC at Syracuse! How is that a casualty?

Mario Christobal - Head coach
Huh? He took an OLine job at defending national champion Alabama. How is that a casualty?

Eddie Johnson - LB
Suspended, and could not even stay at a lower college, even after being given multiple opportunities. Self-inflicted casualty.

Rashawn Scott-currently out of the discipline bull pen
Wow, and ACTUAL casualty, and if you are going to list every injured player, make sure to do that for OTHER teams, too, like your gatrs.

Gabe Terry - LB
Blew his chance with the Canes after a pot arrest. I guess you would want us to Urban Meye/Jimbo Fischer it so that the charge was hidden away like Aaron Hernandez / Jameis Winston? Self-inflicted casualty.

Robert Lockhart - WR
Zero catches, fell far down the depth chart, and transferred. Self-inflicted casualty.

Sony Michel - RB
Chose Georgia. Not everyone wants to try to compete with Duke Johnson. Self-inflicted casualty.

Preston Dewey - QB
Another actual injury, this one career-ending, but he keeps his scholarship in a class move by Miami. Not a casualty caused by the coach.

Ricardo Williams – DE
Like his buddy Lockhart, could not handle the competition, transferred to MARSHALL, has done nothing there. Self-inflicted casualty.

Delvon Simmons – DT
Huh? A Texas Tech player transfers to USC, and you call that a Golden casualty? Weak.

Jacoby Briscoe – DT
Unused player that chose to transfer rather than wait. Self-inflicted casualty.

David Thompson – QB
Why is he on this list? Injured playing BASEBALL, is not a Golden Casualty.

Jalen Grimble – DT
Chose to transfer to Oregon State, on his own, rather than be at the botton of the depth chart. Self-inflicted casualty.

Jontavious Carter - WR
Chose to transfer, on his own, rather than be at the botton of the depth chart. Could not complete with younger and better talents like Coley. Self-inflicted casualty.

Danny Dillard - RB
Chose to transfer, on his own, rather than be at the botton of the depth chart. Could not complete with better talents like Johnson, Crawford, Clements, and Edwards. Self-inflicted casualty.

Dyron Dye – DL
Dye and Nevin and the NCAA did that to Dye, NOT Al Golden. Seeing how the remaining sanctions were so small, it looks like it was the right choice, too. Self-inflicted casualty.

Alin Edouard – QB
Guy knew that he could not compete against the better QBs we are bringing in. Self-inflicted casualty.

Seantrel Henderson - RT
Why is he on here? He lost his starting job? Still gets plenty of playing time.

Raphael Kirby - LB
Sophmore playing behind Senior Jimmy Gaines is a casualty? Nope. More like he is learning behind the current starter.

However, this prediction on YOUR team sure still has the ring of TRUTH in it, Fake Gallo.

----------

Really? You think a team that loses their top two offensive players will lose more games? Shocking information.

Just for fun, lets figure out the Gators record if they lose Driskell, with no backup, and.... and.... do they even have a second offensive player to worry about? LOL!

Yep, that 8-4 Gator team would drop to oh, 5-7 or even 4-8 depending on when Driskell gets his Kerwin Bell rung.

Looking like Driskell went down and the gatrs are going to be 5-7. Karma, gallo, Karma.

Defensive shortcomings aside, the lack of improvement by S. Morris is very troubling, who is the QB coach?

even if golden left...UM had mario christobal......UM would not be performing any less under him...

And then we have the name-changing fellow dropping THIS karmabomb on his own player:

pssssssssssssssssssssssssssssstttttt ... I'm baaaaaaaaack ...

see u soon .

Yep, Veni Vidi Vici on Woof Woof Morrison.

So the complaint is the list has a few that shouldn't be there. Not the high ratio of players that cannot help the team. Never will this coach win. He got rid of a lot of talent and has not coached the talent that remained. Charge his rip off of funds to a great con man. Take the loss, after next year, and move on. As they say here in backwards Jacksonville, this dog ain't gonna hunt.

of course as always bloggers blame the kids....not the coaches.....but watch duke win....

let me know when UM plays for the weak ACC championship....

blah blah blah, hate and lies...
I have always said......these 2 got to go
hate and lies, blah blah blah...

Posted by: Jim Gallo | November 15, 2013 at 10:25 AM

You also said we were going to get the death penalty, lose all of our recruits, and lose to Florida, GT, and UNC. Just because you say a lie multiple times does not make it true. Even the NCAA finally had to accept that when they tried that trick with Nevin Shapiro.

Actually ChampCane, the complaint is that the list has NONE that should be there. He has TWO that are actual casualties, both due to injury, and neither injury was CAUSED by Coach Al Golden.

If I used his logic on his gatrs, where every coach leaving, transfer, injury, starter moved to backup, or recruit that chose another team was put on a Muschamp Casualty List, you would see how weak his argument is.

And now gallo is predicting a duke win? And not a signel soul reading here is surprised.

Gallo, you are 2-7 this year, about to go to 2-8.

Winning 20% of the time on your predictions is pretty terrible. I have a QUARTER that picks game results better than you.

What some of you want to see is guys get in trouble or arrested habitually and Golden to turn a blind eye. This would give you the team you want.

Defensive shortcomings aside, the lack of improvement by S. Morris is very troubling, who is the QB coach?
Posted by: gocanes1 | November 15, 2013 at 10:27 AM

What did Morris do wrong in the last game?
He had no running game supporting him, yet was still able to pass for over 300 yards, including a great pass to Hurns.
Passed over 50% and that doesn't count the five drops.
Over 20 yards per completion.
No interceptions or fumbles.

Morris has had some bad games, but still helped the team win in the end.

He has NOT been healthy, nor has he been as good as expected, but the special teams and defensive shortcomings were by far the bigger reason for that loss to VT.

Players do transfer, at every football program. Al Golden does have players that transfer at a higher rate than others, including Muschamp. That is then used as a reason for his failure. As terrible as Muschamp is, never has that been used as his cause of failure. In backwards Jacksonville, they list everything that goes on in Gainesville. The players Golden targets are typically those that transfer. He is building in an excuse for his failure.

Duke will be tough, confident and ready to go. UM defense must show up, get to QB and play great pass defense.

Need to look into Eddie Johnson story. The kid could play. He had attitude. Like many who are not conformist, he was forced out of the program. Criminals are one thing. Kids who need guidance should be given that from the coaches.

As I have said, some of the player interviews sound like robots talking, "our training, the process" yada, yada. Where is the confidence and the energy? And, yes, a touch of swag?

It would be great to see the Canes show up on both sides of the ball, Morris finally having a great game, the O line showing dominance, the D line geting pressure and the secondary playing tight pass defense. And how about some blitzng? And Goudis makes all his field goals, if we need them.

Come on Canes. Make a statement!

dbc that is what I want to read from you not the Muschamp junk immediately after our defeat to VT.

Good post.

We all are rooting for a kid who has a new outlook, and there are not many second chances in football. Johnson may be the exception.

If the 'Canes play Duke with purpose and attitude we will continue to finish out the season in a positive rebuild mode.
Go 'Canes

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

How do I know you are not a Cane? You don't even have the courage to consistently use the same screen name. Don't be afraid little girl. Very sad indeed!

Dang gallo....5 titles owns your a55!

Gallo - Five Titles ROASTED you today. Made you look like the hapless moron you are. I would be ashamed by the undressing you got today and if you come back with another "list" it should be your mother's customers.

Dude everything you have written about the Canes about the death penalty, Gators, etc.. has failed to materialize, how do you not have any respect for yourself at all to keep writing MORE nonsense?

Being in a UM blog writing negative stuff is bad enough, being taken to school like this would hopefully be the nail in the coffin, so hope to see you never bro.

UGoCane,

Thanks, man. I have recovered from my depressive episode following the VA Tech loss.

We are gonna show up and take it to Duke.

Go Canes! Bring the fire and the execution!

Certainly with your imagined.Thank you for your own sharing.
