Miami will be without leading receiver Xavier Restrepo when the No. 13 Hurricanes visit No. 24 Texas A&M on Saturday.

Restrepo is sidelined indefinitely with a foot injury, though he confirmed to ESPN that he expects to return this season. He leads the No. 13 Hurricanes in targets (12), catches (11) and receiving yards (172) for a team that lost both of its leading receivers from 2021.

Restrepo has largely worked in the slot this season, and his absence will likely shine a spotlight on sophomore Brashard Smith, who is second on the team with five catches out of the slot.

Restrepo has been a particularly reliable target for QB Tyler Van Dyke, who is also his roommate after they arrived together as part of the 2020 recruiting class.

Texas A&M is allowing just 112 passing yards per game and 3.9 yards per attempt through two games this season, both among the best marks in the country.
