Update (3:14 p.m. Tuesday): More information The Post learned Tuesday about Miami’s injured players: 

Cornerback Adrian Colbert will have surgery Wednesday on his broken right forearm, a source said, and will be out indefinitely. Colbert has started three games this year, including the last two. 

Wide receiver Dionte Mullins (hamstring) remains out. Mullins, a reserve who has seen scant playing time, missed last week’s game at Notre Dame.

Adrian Colbert, a grad transfer from Texas coming off his best game at Miami, has a broken right forearm and will be assessed by doctors this week, a source told The Post.

As the extent of Colbert’s injury, which happened last week at Notre Dame, is unknown, so too is his availability for this week’s game (12:30 p.m. Saturday).

Corn Elder, who injured his thumb last week, was not at the media viewing portion of practice but is expected to play this week, according to a source. That’s good news for Miami, who has enjoyed an excellent season from Elder.

Also missing from practice Tuesday: defensive ends Demetrius Jackson, who missed last week with a knee injury, and Scott Patchan (knee).

* Stan Dobard continues to work as a defensive end.
