Virginia Tech running back Marshawn Williams out with torn ACL

vatechVirginia Tech head athletic trainer Mike Goforth announced Tuesday that true freshman running back Marshawn Williams suffered a tear of his left ACL in Saturday’s game against Duke and will miss the remainder of the season.
Team doctors will let the swelling in the knee subside before operating in a few weeks. The Hampton, Virginia, native will miss spring practice.
Williams, Tech’s starter, has played in nine games with eight starts, rushing 124 times for a team-high 475 yards and a four touchdowns. He becomes the second Tech tailback to tear his ACL this year as Shai McKenzie (53 carries, 269 yards, 3 TDs) tore his right ACL in September. Additionally, tailback Trey Edmunds broke his clavicle in October and has yet to return. 
Tech (5-5) returns to action Saturday, taking on Wake Forest in Winston-Salem. Game time is set for 12:30 p.m. at BB&T Field.
