Miami loses LB Darrion Owens for remainder of season
CORAL GABLES, Fla. (AP) Miami linebacker Darrion Owens will miss the rest of the season with a knee injury.
Hurricanes coach Al Golden made the announcement Sunday, two days after Owens was injured in Miami's 44-20 victory at Florida Atlantic. The sophomore played both linebacker positions and started in Miami's season-opening win over Bethune-Cookman.
He's the second significant Miami player out for the year, joining running back Gus Edwards.
Owens will likely be eligible for a medical redshirt, after playing last season as a true freshman. Owens will have surgery later this month to repair the injury, the specifics of which were not disclosed.
