Tate Martell Won’t Play Saturday vs. Pitt

Tate Martell Won’t Play Saturday vs. Pitt

The Miami Hurricanes will be without another wide receiver tomorrow when they take on Pitt.

Christopher Stock from 247 Sports is reporting that much talked about sophomore Tate Martell has taken a medical leave of absence and won’t be with his teammates tomorrow at Heinz Field. This is a bit surprising considering he practiced with the team on Tuesday.

After making the switch at the start of the year from quarterback to wide receiver, Martell has played in four games for the Hurricanes but has yet to catch a pass.

Martell becomes the third wide receiver that Miami has lost just this week after Brian Hightower (transfer) and Jeff Thomas (suspension), which means they’ll only have six wide receivers dressed for tomorrow’s game.

Miami is also dealing with uncertainty at quarterback as both N’Kosi Perry and Jarren Williams are dealing with injuries but head coach Manny Diaz announced today that Perry will make his third consecutive start.

Martell made national headlines last offseason as the highly recruited then quarterback transferred to Miami after spending his first two seasons at Ohio State. Last season, he was backup to Dwayne Haskins and this year, he was slated to backup incoming transfer Justin Fields.
