CORAL GABLES, Fla. (AP) — Miami quarterback Ryan Williams will require surgery in the coming days to repair an injured right knee.

The school says he injured his anterior cruciate ligament during a scrimmage Friday night. There is no timetable for his return, but the typical recovery from ACL surgery is several months.

Williams was Stephen Morris’ backup last season.

The only other quarterback on Miami’s roster with any experience is Gray Crow. Freshman Kevin Olsen has been battling Williams throughout the spring for the No. 1 spot on the depth chart.
