IU football provides update on Dexter Williams’ knee injury

The IU football program provided an update Wednesday on the injury suffered by quarterback Dexter Williams II over the weekend.

Running to his left in the first quarter Saturday in the Old Oaken Bucket game, Williams planted on his right leg and it appeared to give out.  He suffered a major knee injury.

“Redshirt sophomore quarterback Dexter Williams II suffered a knee dislocation with significant structural damage to his knee in the 2022 season finale against Purdue,” IU said in their social media statement.  “Williams is scheduled to undergo surgery next week and will be further evaluated at that time.”

After arriving in Bloomington as part of the class of 2020, Williams saw the first action of his college career in 2022 and led the Hoosiers to an upset win over Michigan State.

In four games, the Georgia product completed 13 of 38 passes for 184 yards, with two touchdowns and two interceptions.  Williams also rushed 40 times for 165 yards and a score.

Williams suffered a torn ACL during spring practice in his redshirt freshman year that caused him to miss the entire 2021 season.
