Stacy Coley returns to practice, Berrios still MIA

Al Golden said Sunday he was expecting to have both Stacy Coley and Braxton Berrios back on the practice field this week.

So far, Al's batting .500.

Coley was back at practice Tuesday morning, but Berrios, who injured his left knee early in the season-opening 45-0 win over Bethune-Cookman, was not. 

Coley missed last Friday's 44-20 win at FAU because of a left hamstring injury, but was in a regular orange practice jersey Tuesday. That means he's practicing without limitations.

The Hurricanes could certainly use the help at receiver. They had six drops against FAU according to Golden and had five in the opener. 

Also back: sophomore linebacker Juwon Young, who was injured in camp and missed the first two games. Young's return should help UM which lost sophomore Darrion Owens to a season-ending knee injury at FAU.

BUSH SELECTED TO ALLSTATE AFCA GOOD WORKS TEAM

Miami Hurricanes safety Deon Bush was named to the American Football Coaches Association's Good Works Team on Tuesday morning, an honor for making a positive impact on others and their communities.

The senior from Miami Columbus High was one of 22 players selected from a group of a record 197 nominees. He's the third Hurricanes player to be picked to the team in the last four years. Running back Mike James (2012) and quarterback Stephen Morris (2013) were previous UM selections.

In its 24th year, the Allstate AFCA Good Works Team is comprised of athletes who have used their limited free time to perform inspirational acts of service.

This past December he served food to the homeless at the Providence House in Shreveport, La. and even used his own per diem money during the Independence Bowl to buy Christmas gifts for homeless children.

Bush has been very active in the local community in his time at UM. He served as one of the team leaders organizing the Be The Match Bone Marrow Drive, helping add over 500 donors to the national registry. He also was a regular visitor to local nursing homes and elementary schools.
