Ray-Ray Armstrong Is Taking His Dismissal From Miami To Court

Miami Hurricanes defensive back Ray-Ray Armstrong is taking to court in order to get back on the playing field. Matt Morgan, Armstrong's Orlando attorney, plans to file an injunction that would allow his client to practice with the Hurricanes while the NCAA determines whether or not he broke rules.

From the Yahoo Sports report:

"Miami made a unilateral decision to dismiss Ray-Ray without NCAA process," Morgan told ESPN. "We believe Miami is using Ray-Ray as a sacrificial lamb to the NCAA."

Armstrong was dismissed from the program in July. Earlier in the year, he was in trouble for interacting inappropriately on Twitter with a booster.

Considered one of the top defensive backs in the country, the loss of Armstrong could be a felt by the Hurricanes. He was named to the preseason watch list for the Bednarik Award. Miami has fewer than 10 starters returning without Armstrong.
