Miami quarterback D’Eriq King will not play Central Connecticut on Saturday due to a shoulder injury, while starting safety Gurvan Hall Jr. will also be absent while serving a one-game suspension. for a violation of team rules.
King was not expected to play after coach Manny Diaz called his status questionable earlier in the week. He was injured against Michigan State last week but stayed and finished the game.
Without King, Miami will start first-year quarterback Tyler Van Dyke and get playing time for Jake Garcia as well.
