On Thursday, Miami safety Gurvan Hall made one of the plays of the spring when he tracked down a ball thrown to the right sideline all the way from the left hash.
That incredible range caught everybody’s attention and helped make him a likely part of the Hurricanes rotation at safety in the fall. Unfortunately, a solid spring for Hall came to an end on Saturday.
Miami coach Mark Richt announced that Hall had suffered a knee injury and that they were shutting him down for the remainder of spring. The good news for Hurricanes fans is that it’s not expected to require surgery or to jeopardize his ability to play in the fall.
“He’ll be here, but he won’t practice,” Richt said according to Matt Porter of the Palm Beach Post. “We don’t believe it’s going to be any kind of surgical thing. You never know for sure, but probably four weeks, four to six.”
Miami returns starters Sheldrick Redwine and Jaquan Johnson, so they should be fine in terms of quality and depth while Hall recovers. However, it’s always disappointing when an exciting young player who appears to be coming into his own is set back by an injury.
