The Hurricanes ruled out three players on their weekly injury report.

Cornerback Adrian Colbert and defensive ends Demetrius Jackson and Scott Patchan will not play Saturday against Pittsburgh (12:30 p.m., ACC regional networks).

Colbert, who was listed by UM as having an “upper extremity” injury, broke his right forearm last week at Notre Dame, a source told The Post. He had surgery Wednesday and is out indefinitely.

Colbert, who has started five games this year, is a grad transfer from Texas. He was awarded UM’s “big hitter of the week” award for his performance in the Hurricanes’ 30-27 loss to the Fighting Irish, in which he made several hard tackles.

Jackson and Patchan, both of whom have knee injuries, were ruled out by “lower extremity.” Jackson has missed the last two games, Patchan the last three.
