Miami: Wright "Nicked Up"

We know that Miami quarterback Kyle Wright did not participate in Monday's scrimmage, but head coach Randy Shannon won't tell us why. Revealing only that Wright is one of several players who has been "nicked up," the injury is most likely a hyperextended left knee, says the Miami Herald - pain through which Wright is expected to play.

Wright, a senior, is competing with junior Kirby Freeman for the starting job. Sitting out a practice, any practice, is certainly not helping his quest to regain the top spot on the depth chart. Sitting out a scrimmage is even worse, despite Wright's casual belittling of his time on the sideline. He put together a lackluster performance in 2006, weak offensive line or no, and needs every minute of field time he can get if he's going to prove that he's still the guy.

The competition will continue until next week, when a starter will be announced prior to the Hurricanes' Sept. 1 opener against Marshall.
