Duke Johnson Injury: Miami RB Leaves Game vs. Florida State After Hurting Ankle
Not only were the Miami Hurricanes down big by the time the fourth quarter rolled around in Saturday's contest against in-state rival Florida State, the team lost star back Duke Johnson to an injury as well.
Johnson fell after a rush and caught his ankle underneath his body while several lineman piled on, and as ESPN elaborates, it did appeared to be a gruesome injury:
Duke Johnson had his right foot/leg twisted under him in that pile. Tough to watch the replay. #MIAvsFSU— ESPN ACC (@ESPN_ACC) November 3, 2013
As a result, Johnson left the field on a cart with his ankle on ice as captured by 7 News:
Entering the contest, Johnson had rushed for 823 yards and six scores on a 6.7 yards per carry average and was having another solid outing with 97 yards on 23 carries before the injury.
With major contests against Virginia Tech and Pittsburgh on the horizon, the Hurricanes need Johnson at full strength to remain competitive.
On the year Johnson was approaching his carry total from his freshman year last season in which he racked up 947 yards and 10 touchdowns.
