Miami quarterback D’Eriq King suffered a torn ACL in a loss to Oklahoma State in the Cheez-it Bowl.

When you hear the words knee injury in football, you know the next news is never good, and unfortunately, the latest victim is Miami quarterback D’Eriq King. During Tuesday night’s 37:34 loss to Oklahoma State at the Cheez-It Bowl, King fell while trying to make a game that resulted in his being eliminated from the game.

To make matters worse, it was confirmed that King had a torn ACL in the game and requires surgery. The good side is that he will return in 2021, but it can’t ease the blow as he knows his team couldn’t get a win in the end.

While an injury, especially a knee condition, is difficult to overcome, King has all of the off-season to recover. Plus, it’s not hard to see the charisma he’s instilled in the Miami program. Before joining « The U, » King was a noticeable passerby at the University of Houston. In 2018 he cast for 2. 982 yards and 36 touchdowns with six interceptions. After a red shirt season in 2019, King announced his transfer to Miami.

When King joined « The U », he threw 23 touchdowns on just five interceptions in his first season. These stats put Miami 25th in the top 25. 18 with an 8-3 record. Unfortunately, this injury is now a setback. Additionally, dealing with a torn ACL when your game depends on your athletic skills is a challenge in itself.

Miami had hoped to end the year on a good note as everyone generally walked through 2020 dealing with multiple roadblocks and high disappointments. Unfortunately, her star quarterback’s injury was the last nail in the coffin of a challenging year. King deserves our thoughts, and we wish him all the best for his recovery.
