Johnson has a history of migraines and said on a teleconference that he took a knee to the head while trying to block. On the next drive, Johnson said he "kind of felt a headache coming on because I suffer from headaches, so I went to the training staff after that."

Johnson has rushed for 655 yards and four touchdowns this season. He was replaced by Dallas Crawford against UNC, and Crawford ran for 137 yards and two touchdowns, including the game-winner with 16 seconds left.

Miami (6-0) is seventh in this week's BCS standings, its highest BCS ranking since mid-November of 2005. It is Miami's first BCS ranking of any kind since mid-November 2010.
