Miami QB Situation Unknown Due to Injury

Miami Ryan Williams

Miami's Ryan Williams is expected to be starting quarterback this season, but due to a recent injury to his knee, it is unsure whether he will be able to be back this spring.

Late last week,Williamssuffereda torn ACLduring a spring scrimmage. It wasn't untildays later that the school released the following statement:

Ryan Williams underwent knee surgery today by UM Athletics Medical DirectorDr. Lee Kaplanat UHealth Sports Performance and Wellness Institute. He has already begun rehabilitation.

Based on prior similar injuries, players have returned in October, at the earliest. Obviously every player heals differently but it seems that as of right now, the fall seems like a very predictable time table for his return.

Earlier this week, before Williams' surgery, head coachAl Golden spoke about the situation.

If [surgery] is in the immediate future, well come up with a plan and well get him rehabbed. In terms of what that means in July, August, September, I dont know. The doctors are going to have to let us know and well go from there. Hes going to go to work. No one is going to do it harder than he is."

All we know is thatif Williams is out for the first part of the season, the starting job will most likely be passed along toKevin Olsen.

Stand by, Hurricane fans.
