Miami starting quarterback Stephen Morris has been listed as doubtful on the Hurricanes' Thursday injury report. Backup Ryan Williams is likely to get his first start at Miami. This shouldn't come as much of a surprise, as Williams has been taking all of the reps with the first team at practice this week while Morris has remained limited.

Morris sprained his left ankle in last Saturday’s 18-14 loss to North Carolina. Against the Tar Heels, Williams was 9-for-13 passing for 80 yards for Miami.

Here is Miami's full injury report:

Miami releases final spring depth chart

The final spring depth chart for the Hurricanes has been released, and there are still plenty of questions heading into summer camp -- none more important than who will start at quarterback. It's no surprise the depth chart indicates a competition remains between Jacory Harris and Stephen Morris.

Three other starting jobs remain in question -- cornerback, where Thomas Finnie and Lee Chambers are competing; middle linebacker is between James Gaines and Jordan Futch; and right tackle where Jermaine Johnson is competing against Ben Jones. Seantrel Henderson finished the spring as a backup at left tackle.

Mike James is listed ahead of Lamar Miller at halfback for the second straight depth chart. The tight ends are once again listed in alphabetical order. The defensive line has also been tweaked since the release of the April 5 depth chart. Olivier Vernon and Adewale Ojomo are listed as the starting ends, and Micanor Regis and Marcus Forston are the projected starters at defensive tackle.

Miami's Shannon shoots down possibility of Swine Flu

Duke has had it. UNC has had it. Colleges and universities all over the country have reported cases of the Swine Flu, which is why, when Miami's injury report came out with three players listed as having an "illness," it was only natural for someone to ask whether or not Miami had also been infected with the bug.

Miami coach Randy Shannon got a little defensive, though, when Jorge Milian of the Palm Beach Post even mentioned the words "Swine Flu."

"We don't have anything, just the guys on the injury report, that's all we have," Shannon said. "I don't know where you get that information from, we don't have those kinds of problems."

Offensive lineman Ben Jones and running back Damien Berry are doubtful for Thursday night's game against Georgia Tech, and defensive back JoJo Nicolas is out -- all with an "illness." It's the same word that was used last week to describe the H1N1 virus for two UNC players.

Miami, though, appears to be safe.

Miami's Shannon wraps up spring at the U

Virginia Tech hasn't even started spring practices yet (Wednesday is the Hokies' first) and Miami has already wrapped things up. What's next in Coral Gables? The Canes will get back in the weight room for six more weeks, but coach Randy Shannon said the staff won't push them too hard physically. They'll meet for 45 minutes twice a week to help the players retain everything they learned from their new coordinators. The staff will now use the mornings to watch practice tape and the afternoons to watch recruiting tape.

Shannon said both coordinators, Mark Whipple and John Lovett, brought a lot of excitement, enthusiasm and confidence with them, and the staff is on the same page. They kept some of the same terminology. The two areas they'd like to see more improvement in summer camp are building the depth on the offensive line and at linebacker. Colin McCarthy will be back in the fall, but Shannon is looking for four or five linebackers that are interchangeable.

As expected, there were a few bumps in the road, but overall the players picked things up quickly.

"Are we better than we were last spring? Definitely," Shannon said. "Are we better than we were at the end of the season last year? Definitely."

Here were a few highlights from spring ball at Miami:

• Taylor Cook finished the spring with a bit of an edge over Cannon Smith at backup quarterback.

• C.J. Holton's move from safety to linebacker should give him a better chance to get on the field and was a step in helping the depth. Sean Spence and Arthur Brown played well this spring and Shannon said Jordan Futch came around the last two weeks.

• Brandon Washington became an offensive lineman the staff can depend on. They've got seven guys they're comfortable with up front, but Shannon said he is still looking for the eighth guy. That could be Ben Jones, Jermaine Johnson or Tyler Horn.

• Tight end Richard Gordon did a great job while all of the other scholarship tight ends were out with injuries. Shannon said the staff put a lot of pressure on him, and he got a lot of reps. "He should be in great shape," Shannon said. "He responded. When those guys come back, there will be a great competition to see which guy is going to step to the forefront and be that guy."

• Shannon said the media is making too much of Miami's lack of interceptions last year (they had four, the fewest of all 119 FBS schools). Shannon said their priority is to stop the run first, which they got better at this spring as a result of depth and maturity. He also said the Canes had about eight to 10 interceptions minimum this spring. He was particularly impressed with the "unbelievable" transition Sam Shields made from wide receiver to the secondary and considers him a starter who can "step in and play right away."

• The players who made a big impression on Shannon this spring were: Shields, Brown, Washington, Mike James, and Olivier Vernon. He said Vaughn Telemaque and Kendal Thompkins "put their stamp on where they want to be." Also, running back Damien Berry did a "tremendous job."

"Those guys have really taken that next step," Shannon said. "That's the biggest improvement, when you see guys who didn't play last year, see if they can really take that next step and be a guy we can say wow, he's going to be a guy we can depend on. That group of guys has really taken that next step of doing what we want them to do."
