CORAL GABLES, Fla. - Miami will be a little thinner on the defensive line at Toledo this weekend.

Rousseau is scheduled to have surgery this week at the UHealth Sports Medicine Institute at the Lennar Foundation Medical Center. A timetable for his return will be determined after surgery.

The early enrollee from Coconut Creek played in Miami's first games of the season, registering five tackles.

No. 21 Miami (1-1) set a school record by scoring 77 points in its home opener.

The Hurricanes will take on Toledo (1-0) at noon Saturday.
