A few notes from the 15-minute media viewing window on Tuesday, when the Al-Quadin Muhammad and Jermaine Grace-less Hurricanes continued to prepare for Saturday’s season-opener against Florida A&M (6 p.m., ESPN3.com):

* Defensive tackle Anthony Moten, as a source told The Post, has a dislocated right shoulder and was held out of practice Tuesday. Moten, a second-stringer behind R.J. McIntosh, rode an exercise bike at the start of practice and was not using his injured shoulder. Ryan Fines took his place as a second-teamer. It’s possible Moten could play on Saturday, a source said.

* Other than that, there were no apparent changes to the depth chart Miami released on Monday. As for “or” spots on the depth chart, Jamie Gordinier ran with the first linebacker unit ahead of Michael Pinckney. Dayall Harris appeared to be taking first-team reps ahead of Ahmmon Richards.

* Others on bikes: running back Trayone Gray and wide receiver Lawrence Cager — both of whom will miss 2016 with torn ACLs — and defensive tackle Tyreic Martin (knee).

* Defensive end Scott Patchan, as he did for much of camp, performed conditioning drills. Fullback Gage Batten, coming off foot surgery, was working out with the team.

* LSU transfer George Brown was at practice in street clothes. Brown, an offensive tackle, will sit out 2016 because of NCAA transfer rules.
