"Allen is not going to be able to make it for this week," Al Golden said. "That's all I can tell you. He's being evaluated today. I don't know anything else or any way that he is going to make it for the week. If there is, then I'll let you know."
Offensive coordinator Jedd Fisch said the offense felt the effect of not having its top receiver for most of the game -- especially when they fell behind early.
"He had two big catches in the first drive, which was nice," said Fisch. "Obviously, it hurt not having Allen. I can't pin that one on that. We didn't play well as a group."
Without Hurns at least this weekend, Miami needs one of the other young receivers to step up and emerge as a go-to guy.
"I think Rashawn," Fisch said. "He's someone we counted on. He had a very good spring, and we talked about him a lot all spring long. He had a good game last week, when he jumped in there, but he's going to have a good game for us."
Malcolm Lewis, a true freshman, saw an increased role after Hurns went down and that should continue.
"Obviously, we're going to have to make sure that Malcolm Lewis has more opportunities and it's fun to watch those guys keep getting better every week," Fisch said. "I think they continue to grow and improve and that makes it fun. Phillip Dorsett is also a guy who has a really big impact in the games here."
It's still unclear when Hurns will return to the starting lineup. Scott and Dorsett are the expected starters for Saturday.
