Miami depth chart remains largely unchanged for North Carolina

The Miami depth chart features only a handful of changes before the No. 8 Hurricanes face North Carolina on Saturday. All Miami’s banged-up players are listed as starters in Tuesday’s update, just as they were a week ago.

This group includes Dee Delaney, the defensive back whose long-term status is most in doubt. The senior has missed the past two games with a “right lower extremity” injury. ESPN’s College GameDay initially reported the graduate transfer could miss up to two months, but the Hurricanes have insisted he’s still just “week-to-week.” For the third week in a row, Delaney is listed as one of Miamis two starting cornerbacks opposite Malek Young. Defensive backs Trajan Bandy and Jhavonte Dean are still listed as Delaney’s co-backups. Bandy got the start against Syracuse. Delaney didn’t practice Tuesday and still wears a brace on his knee.

Navaughn Donaldson, the Hurricanes’ other starter to miss Saturday’s 27-19 win against Syracuse at Hard Rock Stadium, did return to practice Tuesday. The freshman offensive lineman started Miami’s first four games at right guard, but was replaced by Hayden Mahoney the past two weeks. The freshman seems to be on track to return to action in Chapel Hill, N.C. Mahoney is still listed as the left guard and Jahair Jones is slotted as Donaldson’s backup.

Another very minor change to the depth chart is at X-receiver. Ahmmon Richards had. been listed as a co-starter while dealing with a hamstring injury. Now the wide receiver is all alone atop the roster after playing the entirety of Saturday’s game in Miami Gardens, Fla. Lawrence Cager, who had been the co-starter, is now Richards’ backup with Darrell Langham rounding out that spot on the depth chart.
