CORAL GABLES, Fla. (AP) -Miami left tackle Jason Fox injured his right ankle in the Hurricanes' win last weekend over Virginia, not his knee as originally feared, and should be fine for the team's next game Nov. 13 against Virginia Tech.
Fox was examined on Sunday and placed in a soft cast to protect the ankle, which is common Miami policy when dealing with ankle sprains and strains. The Hurricanes return to practice Thursday after four days off following the 24-17 overtime win over the Cavaliers.
``He's doing fine,'' Miami coach Randy Shannon said Wednesday. ``He should be walking around (Thursday) ... and he should be ready for the game.''
Shannon said the two other key Miami players who were banged up in the Virginia game, running back Javarris James and right tackle Chris Rutledge, also were doing fine.
``We're pretty much healthy right now,'' Shannon said. ``We've got to make sure we keep dealing with the little nicks and bumps and bruises, which is normal and make sure we keep them guys moving a little bit better every week.''
