CORAL GABLES, Fla. (AP) - Miami running back Duke Johnson will miss the remainder of the 14th-ranked Hurricanes' season with a broken right ankle.

Johnson was hurt in the third quarter of Saturday night's 41-14 loss at No. 3 Florida State. He got hit just behind the line of scrimmage, his right leg bent awkwardly and then a mass of bodies landed atop him.Coach Al Golden on Sunday confirmed that Johnson was out for the season.

Miami (7-1, 3-1 Atlantic Coast Conference) still controls the league's Coastal Division and could move a big step closer to wrapping up that title with a win this coming weekend against Virginia Tech.
