8/7 Practice: Quick Hitters

The Hurricanes hit the practice fields on Thursday morning for the first of two practices today. CanesTime.com was there and brings you some news and notes from the morning.

* LaRon Byrd scored two more touchdowns, via Jacory Harris. Byrd was, again, singled out by Coach Shannon afterwards.

* Chavez Grant, Ryan Hill, and Sean Spence all had interceptions today.

* Leonard Hankerson scored a touchdown.

* Shannon said Antonio Dixon is fine and might even practice this afternoon.

* Shannon singled out Micanor Regis, who is getting a lot of reps right now.

* There's no word on the three incoming freshmen still waiting to be cleared. Gavin Hardin is expected to arrive in Miami later today.

* Marcus Forston did not practice. It wasn't injury related. Players get weighed after each practice and it had something to do with loss of weight.

* The team worked primarily on goal line and short yardage for a good portion of the practice.

* A.J. Trump continues playing both guard and center.

* Allen Bailey and Eric Moncur are still out.

* Shannon said he won't begin to talk about QB separation until after the second scrimmage.

* Miami Northwestern had a few more coaches out there today. Several players and coaches from Naples High were there as well.

* The team will practice again this afternoon.

Stay tuned, we'll have a full report with player interviews later today.
