HONOLULU – University of Hawaii‘i linebacker Jerrol Garcia-Williams will miss the remainder of the season with a torn ACL in his left knee, which he suffered in last night's loss to Oregon State.
In addition running back Joey Iosefa suffered a fracture in his right ankle late in the game. He is expected to return to the line-up in 4-6 weeks.
"It's very unfortunate that we've lost two extremely talented young men and terrific leaders on this team," head coach Norm Chow said. "However, we are fully confident that others will step up and contribute in their absence."
Garcia-Williams has 14 career starts in 25 games played. He was fifth on the team last season with 67 total tackles, including 3.0 for loss and one sack. He started the first two games this season at outside linebacker
Iosefa missed the majority of eight games last season with a foot injury. Since his return he had four 100-yard rushing games and on Saturday, set a new single-game career-high with three rushing touchdowns against the Beavers.
