Miami Hurricanes quarterback Stephen Morris threw some balls at practice on Wednesday, ahead of the schedule that Hurricanes head coach Al Golden originally thought he'd follow. Morris injured his ankle in the fourth quarter of Saturday's 18-14 loss to the North Carolina Tar Heels.

In an interview with Michael Casagrande of the Sun Sentinel, Golden cautioned about a rush to judgement:

"He just threw stationary," Golden said. "It's not a situation where he can drop yet or even plant. Ryan [Williams] took all the snaps and Preston [Dewey] took some as well. We're moving forward with Ryan and we'll see if Stephen, in the last 72 hours, can do something."

While replacing Morris, quarterback Ryan Williams completed 9-of-13 passes for 80 yards. That was the second game that the sophomore had played in this season, having played in Miami's game against the Kansas St. Wildcats on Sept. 8.

The Hurricanes play the Florida St. Seminoles on Saturday at 8 p.m. ET from Sun Life Stadium in Miami. The game will be televised on ABC and will be streamed live on ESPN3.com.
