There was good news and not-so-good news on the mid-afternoon star front today.
Brad Kaaya sustained a concussion in the worst loss in Miami history two weeks ago and didn’t play in Week 9’s wild win over Duke. Ahead of Saturday’s game against Virginia, the quarterback was officially listed as questionable on the injury report.
However, The U confirmed Saturday that Kaaya has been medically cleared to play in today’s game. The sophomore is expected to start at quarterback for the Hurricanes against the Cavaliers.
At the other end of the spectrum is Leonte Carroo, who has been ruled out of Rutgers’ game against Michigan in the Big House.
Carroo sustained an ankle injury in the Oct. 17 win over Indiana and, after playing against Ohio State the following week, missed the loss to Wisconsin this past weekend. The wide receive currently leads the Scarlet Knights with 527 receiving yards and has nine of the team’s 14 receiving touchdowns. His 24 catches are second on the team despite missing three full games and being severely limited in another.
