Virginia Tech r-sophomore tailback Marshawn Williams is out for the season with a knee injury. Head coach Justin Fuente made the announcement during his regular Monday press conference.
Williams is Virginia Tech’s third-leading rusher. After being suspended for the first two games of the season, he has rushed for 244 yards and two touchdowns on 59 carries over the last nine games.
Fuente noted that Williams returned to the game following his injury against Notre Dame, saying that Williams told him after the game, “I want to win.” He tore his ACL as a true freshman in 2014, and then reinjured his knee during rehab in 2015, which forced him to miss the entire season. It’s not clear whether his current injury is another torn ACL, or something not as serious.
