Miami Hurricanes Quarterback Drake King He will undergo surgery for a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee, but the school said he is expected to be available at the start of the fall camp 2021.
Miami said in a statement on Thursday that a more specific timetable for King’s return would be set after the action.
King’s right knee appeared to contract before he was treated during the Cheese It Powell match against Oklahoma State on Tuesday in Orlando, Florida. He remained on the ground, holding his knee, before limping with the help of the coaches.
“Obviously we are disappointed about Derek, but we know he is in good hands with our medical staff,” Miami coach Manny Diaz said in a statement. “D’Eriq is the captain of this soccer team and we know he will approach his rehabilitation with the same perseverance with which he has handled every aspect of his game since his arrival on our campus. We can’t wait to see him again the field that led our team in August.”
It’s the same knee that King suffered a torn meniscus in 2018 while in Houston.
Earlier on Thursday, King wrote on Twitter: “Thanks for all the texting and calls, I’ll be fine!”
King moved to Miami last January and had a good season throwing 2,686 yards and 23 drops with five interceptions, while lunge 538 yards and four touchdowns. And it was announced last week that he would return to Miami for his sixth season.
