Hurricane RBs leave practice dehydrated

CORAL GABLES, Fla. Miami running backs Damien Berry and Lee Chambers left Tuesday's practice early because of dehydration.

Temperatures reached 87 degrees during the practice, which started at 7:50 a.m. and lasted more than 2 hours.

"We take breaks in practice, that's all you can do," Hurricanes coach Randy Shannon said. "We just tell them to hydrate between drills. That's all you can do, it is a part of camp."

Miami began fall practices on Saturday and have had four consecutive morning practices this fall.

"The first day of camp you usually have about 10 guys that go out, so I'm kind of excited because we've only had two in four days of practice," Shannon said.

Berry, a 5-foot-11, 207-pound sophomore, left practice in a cart. Berry switched to running back from safety after spring practices.

"Whatever position they put me, I am going to play it," Berry said after Monday's workout. "As long as I am on the field, I am feeling great."

Berry was sixth on the depth chart at tailback this fall, just behind Chambers.
