The Miami Hurricanes might have to scrap their quarterback plan for the 2014 season.
The school confirmed to The Herald that Williams suffered a non-contact injury to his right knee Friday night during a closed scrimmage, but did not provide a timetable for his recovery.
The source told the Herald that Williams might be able to return in time to play, depending on the results of the surgery and his rehabilitation. But if the injury is as severe as it's feared to be, he would face a significant layoff before he could get back to playing and might not be ready before the 2014 season concludes.
Williams, who played in four games last season as the backup to Stephen Morris -- a prospect in this year's draft -- and completed 22 of 32 passes for 369 yards, three touchdown passes and one interception.
