"We did a lot of installation of sets today," Coker said. "We pushed them pretty hard today and I was pleased that they competed. Any time like this, you get some mental mistakes as you are teaching the newer player some things but I was encouraged by how hard the guys worked."
Fullback Kyle Cobia and defensive end Larry Anderson missed practices on
Monday. Cobia worked out in the morning on a stationary bike before missing
the afternoon session altogether. Coker announced after the afternoon
practice that Cobia's injury suffered on Saturday has been diagnosed as a
sprain of the tibial fibular joint just below his left knee. The injury does
not directly affect Cobia's knee.
Cobia underwent an MRI Sunday and will miss approximately 10 days of work
while the leg is placed in a temporary cast to immobilize the injured area.
Cobia will be re-evaluated after the 10 days and his prognosis for the
season opener will be determined at that time.
Anderson has sat out the last two days with an illness and is being
evaluated, Coker said.
Miami has two practices slated for Tuesday, the morning session at 8:30 a.m.
and the afternoon workout scheduled for 3:30 p.m.
Practices are open to the public through Friday, August 16. All workouts
are closed to the public beginning Saturday, August 17, with regular media
policies (viewing for only the first 30 minutes and final 15 minutes of
practice) going into effect at that time.
