Miami QB Harris leaves game after hit

Jacory Harris left No. 22 Miami’s game at Virginia in the second quarter after absorbing a huge hit. The school said he would not return.

Harris had just released a deep pass when defensive tackle John-Kevin Dolce hit him squarely in the chest. The impact appeared to lift Harris off his feet and he landed hard with his helmet hitting the ground first. The pass was intercepted and no flag was thrown.

Harris lay flat on his back for several minutes as trainers attended to him, and drew cheers when he finally sat up. He was helped off the field and to the locker room.

The school gave no information about Harris’ injury.

Spencer Whipple replaced Harris at quarterback for the Hurricanes, and his first pass was intercepted. The Hurricanes turned to true freshman Stephen Morris in the third quarter.
