CORAL GABLES, Fla. (AP) -Miami wide receiver Jermaine McKenzie can start wearing a helmet but cannot participate yet in any contact drills.
McKenzie broke neck vertebrae in a one-car crash on July 16. He wore a brace for about six weeks, and doctors waited about another month before clearing him to wear the helmet.
``For him just to line up and have a helmet on his head is great,'' Miami coach Randy Shannon said Thursday. ``It gives him confidence.''
McKenzie and two teammates were hurt shortly past midnight on July 16, when McKenzie fell asleep while driving Miami quarterback Robert Marve's 2007 Dodge Charger. The car rolled several times before coming to a stop on its roof.
Marve suffered a broken wrist and can participate only in certain drills. Linebacker Colin McCarthy suffered minor injuries.
