Connor Williams

Texas hung with fourth-ranked USC Saturday night, but lost more than the game.

In the second quarter of UT’s epic double-overtime loss to USC in Week 3, Connor Williams went down with what appeared to be a potentially significant knee injury.  Sunday evening, the Longhorns confirmed as much as the football program announced that the offensive tackle had sustained sprains to the MCL and PCL in his left knee.  Additionally, the junior suffered a meniscus tear.

As a result, Williams will undergo arthroscopic surgery to repair the damage.  However, that surgery will not take place for 7-10 days, meaning the tackle will likely be sidelined for a significant period of time.  Just how significant that time will be remains to be seen.

“There is no timetable on his return at this point and a further update will be provided following surgery,” the school stated in its release.

The loss of Williams, projected to be one of the top linemen potentially available in the 2018 NFL draft, would be significant for the Longhorns.

In regards to Williams draft stock–it shouldn’t affect it too much. I still peg him to be one of the first lineman off the board in the 2018 NFL Draft.
