CORAL GABLES, Fla. -- Running back Javarris James, defensive end Eric Moncur and safety Ray Ray Armstrong all have been ruled out of Miami's (No. 19 BCS, No. 18 AP) game at Wake Forest on Saturday.

The school listed all three injuries as "lower extremity." It's more of the same for Miami, which has not had its first-string defense together for any game this season.

Matt Bosher -- who will handle kickoffs, in addition to placekicking and punting -- is listed as probable because of an undisclosed illness. The school also confirmed that linebacker Sean Spence (knee) has been ruled out for the week.
