Miami WR Ahmmon Richards’ career reportedly over due to neck injury

Miami Hurricanes

The football career of Miami Hurricanes wide receiver Ahmmon Richards is over due to a neck injury, according to a report.

The Miami Herald’s Barry Jackson and Susan Miller Degnan reported on Saturday night that Richards will not be able to play again due to a disabling neck injury.

Richards, who was viewed as a top potential NFL prospect, has not played since Miami’s opener against LSU. He was said to be out with a knee injury. It’s unclear when he suffered the injury.

The junior had one catch for nine yards this season. He emerged as a freshman, catching 49 passes for 934 yards and three touchdowns (and delivering highlights like this one). Last season he had 24 catches for 439 yards while being limited by knee and hamstring injuries.

Richards sent a few tweets on Saturday night after Miami’s comeback win over rival Florida State:

Each top 25 college football team’s most important player

Tua Tagovailoa

The college football season is upon us, which should have fans pumped across the country. Though it will take a while to get a sense for the best 25 teams in the country, we do have our preseason top 25 entering the first full slate of games. Those teams will be relying on some key players all season. Here is a look at the most important player for each of the preseason’s top 25 teams.

1) Alabama — Tua Tagovailoa, QB

After taking over the second half of the national championship game, Tagovailoa showed what he can do. He is mobile, fearless, and has a big arm. He can give Alabama the kind of big-play ability at quarterback they haven’t seen for a while — possibly ever. He has no shortage of talent around him, much of it NFL-level, and he has already demonstrated skill and poise in the most pressure-filled situation. Expect him to have a solid year at minimum.

Miami wide receiver Ahmmon Richards showed off his incredible leaping ability during Saturday’s game against Notre Dame.

The Hurricanes freshman took a toss on a reverse and hurdled one of Notre Dame’s defenders during the third quarter:

The play only went for four yards, but Richards seemed to gain more than that in height alone on his leap.
