CORAL GABLES, Fla. -- Miami quarterback Kyle Wright was on the practice field Tuesday, although his status for the Hurricanes' game this weekend against North Carolina State remains unclear.

Wright has a sprained left ankle and a sprained tendon behind his left knee. He was hurt in Miami's last game at Florida State on Oct. 20, and said he wouldn't have played if the Hurricanes had a game this past weekend.

"I tried to do as much as I could in individual drills and warm-ups," Wright said. "That's really where I'm at right now."

If Wright cannot play, Miami will have Kirby Freeman start against NC State.

Freeman was 4-for-11 for 59 yards and the winning touchdown at Florida State, taking over when Wright got hurt late in the first half.
