CORAL GABLES, Fla. (AP) -Miami quarterback Kyle Wright missed practice Tuesday because of injuries that knocked him out of the Hurricanes' win over Florida State last weekend.
Wright said he injured his left ankle and left knee in the second quarter of Miami's 37-29 victory.
``He'll be back next week,'' Miami coach Randy Shannon said after practice. ``Give him a week or so. Right now it's an ankle sprain. We need to isolate it and get it ready. Hopefully, he'll be ready by Sunday.''
Wright was not available for comment Tuesday.
Kirby Freeman replaced Wright in Saturday's game and threw the go-ahead touchdown to Dedrick Epps with 1:15 left. Wright was able to return to try a 2-point conversion pass after that score.
The Hurricanes (5-3, 2-2 Atlantic Coast Conference) will practice Wednesday, have an open date this weekend and begin preparing for a Nov. 3 game with North Carolina State on Sunday.
