Draft Scout Ahmmon Richards News
10/08/18 - Miami wide receiver Ahmmon Richards' career is effectively over because of a disabling neck injury that will make playing football a too high-risk proposition for him going forward. Miami announced the news Sunday, without revealing the exact nature of the injury or how it happened. The announcement came one day after the 16th-ranked Hurricanes rallied to win their annual rivalry game with Florida State. Richards spent that game on the sideline, jumping and celebrating with teammates as Miami pulled off its biggest comeback win since 2003. That will be his role going forward. Richards' career ends with 74 catches for 1,382 yards and six touchdowns.
"I'm extremely appreciative of the university's athletic training and medical staffs for diagnosing this injury, and to the football coaches and staff for always putting my health first," Richards said in a statement distributed by the school. "I plan to continue working towards my degree at UM and look forward to the next chapter in my life." Richards will remain on scholarship at Miami. "While we share in Ahmmon's disappointment that his football career is over, his health must be the top priority," Miami coach Mark Richt said. - AP College Football
09/05/18 - WR Ahmmon Richards took a hit on his knee and was largely a non-factor in the loss to LSU. He had only one catch against the Tigers for a 9-yard gain. "His knee is still an issue," said coach Mark Richt, who noted that Richards did not practice Tuesday morning. Richt said he doesn't think the injury is severe, but considering the mismatch this week's game figures to be, Richards could be held out as a precaution. "Day to day" is the evaluation Richt put on it.

11/29/17 - No. 7 Miami has taken another big injury hit, losing wide receiver Ahmmon Richards for the remainder of the season after he injured his left knee in practice Wednesday. Richards has a meniscus injury. That news came less than a week after the Hurricanes (10-1) lost starting tight end Christopher Herndon IV, also to a season-ending knee injury. Miami plays No. 1 Clemson in Saturday's Atlantic Coast Conference championship game. Richards will have surgery this week. He had 24 catches for 439 yards and three touchdowns in an injury-plagued season, one where he was slowed by a bad hamstring for several weeks. Herndon was Miami's second-leading receiver, Richards was No. 3. And the Hurricanes have played most of the season without running back Mark Walton, lost to an ankle injury. - AP College Football
10/17/17 - WR Ahmmon Richards was listed as questionable in last week's injury report but did not play for the Hurricanes against Georgia Tech because of the hamstring issue that has limited him to one appearance this season. He is considered day-to-day.
