Miami Loses WR Ahmmon Richards for Rest of Season
UNDATED (AP) — No. 7 Miami has taken another big injury hit, losing wide receiver Ahmmon Richards for the remainder of the season after he injured his left knee in practice Wednesday.
Richards has a meniscus injury. That news came less than a week after the Hurricanes, who are 10-1, lost starting tight end Christopher Herndon IV, also to a season-ending knee injury.
Miami plays No. 1 Clemson in Saturday's Atlantic Coast Conference championship game.
