CORAL GABLES — Quick updates from the brief media viewing period of Tuesday’s practice, in advance of Saturday’s game against Syracuse (3:30 p.m., ESPN):

Cornerback Sheldrick Redwine, dealing with an unknown injury, was present at practice. Redwine has not played since the third quarter against Florida State two weeks ago.

Wide receiver Ahmmon Richards (hamstring) appeared to be full-go. Richards dressed but did not play against Georgia Tech. Miami’s top wideout strained his hamstring in camp and has played in two of UM’s five games, catching seven passes for 174 yards and a touchdown.

Right guard Navaughn Donaldson (right ankle sprain) and Dee Delaney (right knee) were riding stationary bikes. Both were injured against FSU and missed last week’s game. Donaldson was no longer wearing the boot he had on last week. Delaney had a knee brace on.

Linebacker Michael Pinckney was present and not in pads. He was wearing a green (no-contact) jersey.  Pinckney injured his chest in the second quarter against the Yellow Jackets.

Wide receiver Braxton Berrios was in a green (no-contact) jersey. He was in pads. Berrios was given at least one day off post-FSU to recover from soreness.

Receiver Dayall Harris was back in his regular No. 80 jersey. He has served a three-game suspension for a team rules violation and is expected to play this week.

Freshman wideout Evidence Njoku continues to look impressive. The redshirting receiver, 6-foot-6 and 196 pounds, is smooth and has good body control — like his brother, David Njoku, who has 14 receptions for 118 yards and three touchdowns as a Cleveland Browns rookie.

The Carolina Panthers released former UM quarterback Brad Kaaya, according to ESPN.
