 CORAL GABLES, Fla. (AP) -Miami running back Javarris James will not play Saturday when the Hurricanes open their Atlantic Coast Conference schedule against North Carolina, and will likely miss the following week's game against rival Florida State as he recovers from a high ankle sprain.
James suffered the injury two weeks ago in the early stages of Miami's loss at Florida, and has not practiced or played since.
``If he gets out (of his cast) and can run this week, then he might be ready for FSU,'' Miami coach Randy Shannon said Sunday. ``A running back's ankle, with a high ankle sprain, that's a lot of cutting. And if he can't run this week, I don't see him being ready for FSU.''
Shannon indicated that a more realistic timetable may have James back for Miami's game against Central Florida on Oct. 11.
carries for 77 yards and a touchdown this season.
