Tyler Van Dyke reportedly dealing with leg injury ahead of matchup vs. Clemson
Tyler Van Dyke is dealing with an injured right leg, according to a report.
Per the Miami Herald’s Susan Miller, Van Dyke was seen on campus Monday with his right leg wrapped in a bandage above his knee. The report also says Van Dyke was limping and keeping his right leg stiff as he walked.
Head coach Mario Cristobal was asked about Van Dyke’s status at his press conference on Monday.
“I don’t talk about injuries,” Cristobal said. “I just told one of our guys that he’s ready to go. So you have to write what you have to write and … next question.”
Here’s video of Cristobal’s answer:

Van Dyke was sacked three times in Miami’s 41-31 loss to North Carolina over the weekend. The Hurricanes’ offensive line struggled against North Carolina’s pass rush, which helped force a pair of interceptions from Van Dyke as well.
True freshman quarterback Emory Williams has been Miami’s primary backup so far this season. Williams has completed 12-of-15 passes for 144 yards in relief of Van Dyke. Miami could also turn to Jacurri Brown, who played in relief of an injured Van Dyke in 2022. The Hurricanes are attempting to redshirt Brown this season.
Miami will face Clemson on Saturday at 8 p.m. ET.
