Marshawn Williams

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.

  1. It was great to see you out there MW! Blessings and Gods speed in healing! Come back if you can – but you are always a HOKIE! You looked great against ND!

    Hang in there Marshawn!

  2. It feels the staff is a bit strong minded on pushing their running back system using everyone but the person who carried this team for 8 plus games when people doubted him last year. I Hope MW makes a return but it’s bleak that he can be effective like he was. I am still asking for the heavy workload to be entrusted to Travon without him having to look over his shoulder.

  3. God Bless Marshawn! We are all behind you dude..I hope you heal completely and come back strong..
    I know you’ll be a success in whatever you do in life..you are a fighter.. I just hope, for YOUR sake, you get to play football again if that’s what you want!

    You are a Hokie for life..one of us! We all hurt for you !

  4. ND showed they were finally showing how to use this guy between the tackles. Really sorry he went down and wish him nothing but the best.

  5. Mr. Williams is overdue for a run of really good luck ! A true ‘gritty’ Hokie who makes ever member of the Hokie Nation very proud !!!

  6. Ugh, that’s really a shame. He seems like a great dude and loves being a Hokie. Hopefully it’s nothing serious and he can come back.

  7. Who made the post on the Sub Board last week. Get him to talk about how extremely healthy Stroman is this week.

    Poor kid. He’s got talent but about the worst luck I’ve seen. Probably needs to start thinking about his future outside of football if it is another ACL tear.

    1. I was just about to post similar. The guy who posted last week must have a news feed 1 week into the future.

      Hey, tell me the PowerBall numbers, and I’ll split it with you!!
