Earlier today Miami Head Coach Al Golden announced that the two players who have split time at RT this season, Kc McDermott and Taylor Gadbois, will both miss this weekend's game Vs GT in Atlanta.
Golden said the 9 OLs this week are Flowers, Feliciano, S.McDermott, Linder, Isidora, Wells, Gall, Odogwu and Darling.— Matt Porter (@mattyports) September 30, 2014

The good news is that starting left guard Jon Feliciano has 2 career starts at tackle to go with tons of experience on the interior. He also appeared very comfortable at the spot in the 4th quarter of UM's 22-10 win Vs Duke this past weekend.
Two freshman, Nick Linder and Trevor Darling, could see the majority of snaps in his place at G. But Hunter Wells and Trevor Gall also have experience and can also step in as needed.
All in all Miami should be able to sustain their recent excellent play on the O line, thanks to good depth.
Hopefully for Gadbois, the injury is not too serious, as he has really stepped up his play since the opener Vs Louisville, and also helped bring the team together with a spirited defense of freshman QB Brad Kaaya, when Nebraska tried to rough him up.
McDermott is a five star prospect who has also played well of late.
