Miami Hurricanes Football lose LT Ereck Flowers

UM's powerful offensive line has lost it's best player. No timetable on his return. **No confirmation he is out for the season.

Melina Vastola-USA TODAY Sports

Just when UM fans were feeling good about the team......

This is awful news for a Miami offensive line that was looking very cohesive, and mauled a good VT front last Thursday.

And Flowers is widely regarded as the best of UM's big guys up front.

He had also made 21 consecutive starts. The 6'6 324 pound junior has caught the eye of NFL scouts as well, and before injury likely would have considered foregoing his senior season at UM.

Whether this changes that, remains to be seen.

In the interim, this is terrible news for UM.

Inexperienced Sunny Odogwu and true freshman Trevor Darling are most likely to see snaps in his absence. James Coley also confirmed that you will see Jon Feliciano shift from RT to LT.

Here's hoping for a speedy recovery for Ereck.

Updated:  things may not be as bad as initially reported.

We will have much more on Flowers status as we learn it here on SOTU.
