Shoulder injury to cost Miami’s Rashawn Scott a month

Already ruled out of this Saturday’s game with Florida, Rashawn Scott will not so unexpectedly be out a bit longer after that as well.

Head coach Al Golden confirmed Wednesday afternoon that the wide receiver will miss the next month or so.  It had previously been reported that Scott would miss 4-6 weeks with a broken collarbone, although Golden has declined to get that specific with the nature of the injury.

A four-week timeframe could get Scott back on the field in time for the ACC opener against Georgia Tech Oct. 5.

Scott suffered the injury in the season-opening win over FAU last Friday.  Prior to that, he had two catches for 28 yards.

With 35 catches for 512 yards last season, Scott was the Hurricanes’ second-leading receiver.

    It seems to me that Florida is going to have to bring their ‘A’ game and Miami will need to hang onto the ball, give Morris time to do what he does and just play Hurricane defense, if they do that, the onus will be on Florida not the U

    He’ll be missed for sure.

    Mr. Coley needs to get his hands in order for Saturday….next man up.

    I don’t think this is too major. Florida is going to keep heir focus on Duke regardless. And justslonewolf, you better hope they play better than hurricane defense, it didn’t do much good for them last year.

    Rashawn Scott was the 2nd leading receiver last season, however, he’s not in the starting rotation this season (lost the starting job), so the injury, while it hurts our depth at WR, it doesn’t change anything for us and the starters Dorsett and Hurns. Herb Waters will be a name to remember this Saturday, dude will have an epic game against a great defense in Florida. I’m a canes fan and if the Defense can forget about last season and play like a canes D, then watch out gator country. Of course gators will key on Duke, this will be the emphasis for every defense that faces us, but Morris will have a field day picking the D apart (assuming that O line plays like it should of course).

    jaydm84: Yeah let me rephrase that, if they play the Hurricane defense like they USED to when they just smothered everybody!

    Florida will bring ball control, a stable of backs, and nasty defense.

    UM will bring a 3rd down back, and that highly suspect defense.

    []_[] get pounded. Keep duke between the tackles. Game over.

    Florida’s defense is better than Miami’s.

    Miami’s offense is better than Florida’s.

    Specials teams edge — Miami.

    Miami wins 24-20.
