Miami’s Dyron Dye out indefinitely after Achilles surgery

An Achilles injury suffered last month has left Dyron Dye out for the short-term and put his longer-term availability very much up in the air.

The defensive lineman suffered the injury to the tendon during Miami’s first scrimmage of the spring March 23.  As a result, Dye underwent surgery recently to repair the damage, UM confirmed in a press release Tuesday.

As for any prognosis, the school would only say that Dyer would be sidelined indefinitely.  There was also no confirmation on whether the Achilles was ruptured.  If that were to be the case, his availability for the 2013 season would be in serious jeopardy.

Dye spent his redshirt freshman season in 2010 as a defensive lineman, moving to tight end the following year.  Last year, he started eight of the 12 games in which played, all at the tight end position.  He caught four passes for 48 yards in 2012 as essentially a blocking tight end.

This offseason, Dye was moved back to defensive end, where he was listed No. 2 on the depth chart entering spring practice.

    Has is positionless. He has underachieved. He is injure and useless. He is a BUST. What about that is so incredibly hard for cane fan to wrap his ignorant double standard brain around?

    If Dyron Dye is your #2 DE you have serious problems. But that’s an entirely different dumpster fire.

    Dislike now.
