'Canes DE Trent Harris expected to play vs FAMU despite broken hand

MIAMI, Florida -- The Hurricanes defense – already reeling after this weekend’s dismissal of two top players – will have to deal with another challenge now that one of its projected starters is hurt.

Junior Trent Harris, listed as one of the Miami’s starters at defensive end, broke his hand and went to see a doctor for the issue on Tuesday, his mother Betsy Harris told the Orlando Sentinel. She also said the expectation, though, is that Harris will be able to play Saturday when the Hurricanes open their season against FAMU on Saturday at Hard Rock Stadium.

That would be a positive development for Miami, which will be without defensive end Al-Quadin Muhammad and linebacker Jermaine Grace for the season after the school determined the pair committed NCAA violations in their dealings with a local luxury car rental agency.

Muhammad was projected to start at defensive end ahead of Harris after leading the Hurricanes with five sacks last year. Grace, meanwhile, was Miami’s leading tackler with 79 stops in 2015.
