On Sunday evening, the University of Miami announced that junior linebacker Charles Perry would miss the remainder of the 2017 season with an injury.
Here’s the press release from Miami Athletics:
CORAL GABLES, Fla. – The University of Miami football program announced Sunday that linebacker Charles Perry will miss the remainder of the season after sustaining a left lower extremity injury in Saturday’s win over Notre Dame.
Perry, a junior from West Palm Beach, posted 15 tackles and one interception in nine games this season.
Perry was injured during the opening kickoff of the 3rd quarter of Miami’s dominant 41-8 win against Notre Dame. It looked bad for Perry, who could barely put any weight on his left leg as he exited the field, and now the extent of the injury has been announced.
A redshirt junior from West Palm Beach, FL, Perry was a 4-star recruit who committed to Miami as a high school sophomore and never wavered on that commitment. Even with other top schools pursuing him for years, and through the end of Al Golden’s tenure (which was poor for performance), Perry was steadfast in his love of and commitment to Miami.
In his absence, fellow backup LBs Mike Smith and Darrion Owens should see increased snaps. Freshmen LBs De’Andre Wilder and Bradley Jennings Jr. could also see their playing time increase to cover for Perry’s absence in the 2nd team LB group.
We wish Charles Perry the best in his recovery.
