Heading into a huge matchup with an in-state rival, the Florida Gators, the Miami Hurricanes got some bad news.
Junior Rashawn Scott will be out at least a month, according to Hurricanes head coach Al Golden.
“It doesn’t look good for this week. It looks like it’s going to be a little bit longer than we want it to be,” Golden told the Miami Herald. “As soon as we make a definitive determination we’ll let you know.”
Golden told reporters the injury was a “shoulder” injury when asked about Scott’s collarbone.
“He’s alright. He’s dealt with something like this before,” teammate Phillip Dorsett told the Herald. “He’s not really down. He’s still a good guy, still up, talking a lot, still in meetings. He’ll be alright.
The 6’2, 203 lb. wide receiver had two catches for 28 yards before the injury, which occurred in the Hurricanes’ 34-6 win over Florida Atlantic Friday.
Scott had 35 catches for 512 yards and three touchdowns during the 2012.
The Hurricanes and Gators will face off in Sun Life Stadium Saturday. Kickoff is scheduled for noon EST and you can watch the game on ESPN. The Gators are currently a three-point favorite.
