Jacory Harris tied a career best with four first-half touchdown passes in Miami’s 30-21 victory on Saturday against Clemson, but the issue of Harris’ shoulder garnered more interest among fans than an important ACC road win.
Harris’ father said that his son did bruise his shoulder, but does not have a torn labrum.
Moving forward, Harris had issues with interceptions and even if the shoulder injury is not as serious, how will this affect him in the coming weeks?
“You know he’s a resilient kid. He’ll bounce back,” Rodney Harris said. “I know he can’t sit back and think about those interceptions. He’s got to brush those off and move on. He’s done that and he’ll continue to do it.”
The source of the injury likely came during the Pittsburgh in which Harris’ backup had to come in for a few plays.
According to the Ft. Lauderdale Sun-Sentinel, Harris suffered a bruised acromioclavicular (AC) joint when he was sacked in the fourth quarter against Pittsburgh.
Agaisnt Clemson administered punishment to Harris in the pocket as the Tigers’ Da’Quan Bowers forced a fumble and Harris absorbed a punishing hit from Andre Branch after the football was released.
Harris is a fearless competitor throwing the football downfield, but will Miami have to rely more on the ACC’s top defense and emerging running game to take the pressure off the talented 6’5 signal caller?
