On Wednesday afternoon, the University of Miami announced that Sophomore LB De’Andre Wilder would miss the remainder of the 2018 season with an injury.
Here’s the release on this topic from Miami Athletics:
CORAL GABLES, Fla. – The University of Miami football program announced Wednesday that sophomore linebacker De’Andre Wilder has sustained a neck injury and will be sidelined for the remainder of the season.
Wilder, a native of Opa Locka, Fla., played in 12 games as a freshman in 2017, registering 10 tackles.
A standout from Carol City HS, Wilder was a depth player on special teams as a freshman, and did not see the field in 2018. Susan Miller Degnan of The Miami Herald has reported that Wilder sustained his injury in fall camp.

Wilder missing the season will thin the LB group for the Canes, but he was behind several players at the position, and the new STRIKER position, so his departure won’t likely change the depth chart much, if at all.
In any event, we wish De’Andre Wilder a fully recovery from his neck injury.
The Hurricanes continue the 2018 season tomorrow night in the ACC opener vs North Carolina.
