defensive ends Andrew Williams (knee) and Jerome McDougle (strained pectoral
The Hurricanes will go through a mock game practice on Saturday morning at 9

practice will be closed to the public and the media. Miami will practice on
Sunday afternoon at 2:30 p.m., as well. Media members may view the first
half hour and final 15 minutes of Sunday's workout.
