Well, it's another day of the week, which means it's time for your daily update on Miami quarterback Jacory Harris.
Harris got knocked out of the Hurricanes' loss to Virginia last week -- and if you haven't seen the hit, feel free to check it out -- and freshman Stephen Morris was taking snaps with the first team in practice this week. Still, the possibility of Harris returning to play against Maryland hasn't been completely ruled out.
On Wednesday Randy Shannon said that Morris will start, as Harris was held out of practice again, but he could play if he's able to return to practice on Thursday. Though Shannon doesn't seem too confident that's what will happen.
Shannon said that he "doubts [Harris] plays this week" and that there's a 75% chance that he won't.
Which means that Morris will be making his first career start against a Maryland team that has played surprisingly well so far this season. Though, to be fair, the Terps are 3-1 in the conference with those wins coming against Duke, Boston College and Wake Forest.
Not exactly the best the ACC has to offer. Though, considering how poorly the Hurricanes played last week after Harris left the game, this trip to Miami may not be that much tougher.
