SAN FRANCISCO (AP) -Miami tight end Dedrick Epps didn't suit up for the Emerald Bowl on Saturday night because of a bruised leg.
Epps was the Hurricanes' fourth-leading receiver during the regular season with 22 catches, and was third with 304 yards receiving. He started 10 of 12 games during his junior season, catching two touchdown passes.
Epps' injury was another blow to the depth of the Hurricanes. The school suspended five players for violating team rules before its first bowl game under coach Randy Shannon, including starting quarterback Robert Marve.
Miami also suspended two backup tight ends - Richard Gordon and Tervaris Johnson - along with linebacker Jordan Futch and punt snapper Chris Ivory.
Chris Zellner, who caught six passes and started occasionally during the regular season, replaced Epps.
