Miami expecting to be without LT Ereck Flowers

CORAL GABLES, Fla. (AP) Miami is planning to be without starting left tackle Ereck Flowers for at least this Saturday's game against North Carolina.

Hurricanes coach Al Golden says he expects to know Wednesday when Flowers can return, if at all this season. Golden says Flowers had a recurring injury flare up again in recent days.

Miami has also lost offensive linemen K.C. McDermott and Taylor Gadbois to injury in recent weeks.

Jon Feliciano will likely start at left tackle this week, with Trevor Darling moving into Feliciano's spot on the right side.
