The second practice today was just that, the second practice of the day. The players looked a bit fatigued from practice, but they still got some things accomplished. There were a lot of players that sat out today's practice. The biggest news of the practice was the results of <A HREF=[PlayerNode:687902]>Roscoe Parrish</A>'s MRI taken earlier in the day.

Another good afternoon for football as the Hurricanes completed their first week of practices. With their first game less than three weeks away progress is imperative. The players were just in shoulder pads today but the intensity was there once again.

The Miami Hurricanes return all three starters at the linebacker position for the 2003 season: Jonathan Vilma, D.J. Williams and Roger McIntosh. This trio of linebackers is one of the best in the country. All three are very athletic and run very well. Vilma and Williams were semifinalists for the Butkus Award (presented to the nation's top linebacker) last season and will be frontrunners for the award this upcoming season.
