CORAL GABLES, Fla. – Hurricanes head coach Mark Richt said Sunday that quarterback Brad Kaaya will need to rest his arm after Florida State roughed him up in Saturday's prime time thriller at Hard Rock Stadium.

"Brad got his shoulder banged up," Richt told the media a day after Miami's 20-19 loss. "He probably won't throw for a couple days."

Kaaya also took a helmet-to-helmet hit that knocked out one of his teeth, but Richt said that right now they are "not categorizing anything as a concussion."

The No. 23 Seminoles (4-2, 1-2 Atlantic Coast Conference) handed 10th-ranked Miami (4-1, 1-1 ACC) its first loss of the Mark Richt era.
