CORAL GABLES, Fla. (AP) -- Top running back Damien Berry will not
play for Miami against Maryland on Saturday, the latest blow for a
reeling team that's already bracing to be without quarterback
Miami coach Randy Shannon says Berry has been dealing with
nagging injuries for the better part of a month. Harris will not
start because of a concussion, and Miami has promoted
fourth-stringer Stephen Morris to take his place.
Berry leads Miami with 690 rushing yards, which is more than the
next six Hurricanes rushers combined. Lamar Miller (252) and Mike
James (243) have been the primary backups this season.
Miami (5-3, 3-2 Atlantic Coast Conference) needs a win to keep
its fledgling chance of winning the league's Coastal Division title
