Not so sure if this is cause for celebration in the Canes nation, but Heisman winner Sam Bradford won't make his comeback at LandShark Stadium this Saturday in Miami's game against the Sooners. Canes fans might be breaking out the party hats and applying that head-to-toe orange-and-green body paint with glee if it wasn't for the fact that Bradford's replacement isn't a pushover. 

Landry Jones will start after setting a school record for TD passes two weeks ago and keeping the team in the win column after the season opener when Bradford went down. Of course, he hasn't been tested in a big road game against a ranked opponent. 

If the Sooners pushed Bradford into the game, it might have created an opportunity for the Canes if he wasn't fully recovered. Thankfully, Canes QB Jacory Harris is still 100 percent healthy, and if he brings his A-game, anything is possible.
