Miami quarterback Ryan Williams suffered a torn ACL in a recent scrimmage and is out indefinitely. Williams was slated to open the year as the starting quarterback, but it’s uncertain if he will be able to return in time for the season opener. The senior will have surgery to repair the ACL injury.
Assuming Williams is unable to return in time for the opener, Miami will likely turn to redshirt freshman Kevin Olsen.
Miami will also have touted freshman Brad Kaaya join the team this summer, but it’s unlikely he unseats Olsen or even Williams (if he’s back in time for the opener).
Williams’ injury is a huge blow for a Miami team that opens at Louisville in 2014.
Even though an injury to Williams is a setback, the Hurricanes still have a solid offensive line, a standout running back in Duke Johnson, and a rising star at receiver in Stacy Coley.
