The Miami Hurricanes pulled off a miracle victory over Georgia Tech on Saturday, but they didn't escape unscathed. Malcolm Lewis suffered a gruesome leg injury. Punter Dalton Botts — arguably one of the most important players on the team — left the game on crutches. The Canes also have a few previously injured players who may or may not return for this weekend's game vs. N.C. State.

Al Golden spoke to reporters on Sunday about Miami's injuries, and here is what he had to say.

  • Malcom Lewis, to no one's surprise, is out for the year. The official diagnosis is a dislocated ankle, but Golden said that he also may have suffered a fracture. The good news is that Lewis' ankle did not break the skin. He'll have surgery at some point in the near future.
  • Dalton Botts suffered a sprained right ankle. Golden hopes that Botts will be able to start kicking on Thursday, so his status won't be known until later in the week. Susan Miller Degnan, though, says she'll be surprised if Botts plays on Saturday.
  • Denzel Perryman had his cast removed today, but there's been no official update on his status. Jorge Milian thinks that it will still be a few weeks before Perryman is back on the field.
  • Golden didn't give an update on Raphael Kirby or Curtis Porter
