Miami QB Harris injured
Miami quarterback Jacory Harris was knocked out of the team’s ACC game against Virginia early in the second quarter after getting leveled — cleanly — on a passing play that resulted in an underthrown pass and interception.
Harris, who was left motionless for a bit, was helped off the field and taken to the locker room.
Backup Spencer Whipple, son of offensive coordinator Mark Whipple, entered the contest in Charlottesville and threw an interception on Miami’s next possession. The Hurricanes trail 14-0 at the half, and Whipple looks overwhelmed under center. He finished the first half 2 of 6 through the air for 22 yards and two interceptions.
Stay with the National Football Post for more information when it becomes available on Harris’ condition.
UPDATE: Harris is out for the game with an undisclosed injury. The Hurricanes have now turned to true freshman Stephen Morris under center. The coaching staff decided to burn his redshirt, as they are desperate for steady play at QB. Despite being down, the 'Canes need to run the ball in the second half because that might be their best chance to generate any offense.
