Hendon Hooker, Tennessee's Heisman Trophy candidate quarterback, out for season with torn ACL

Date:


Hendon Hooker suffered a torn ACL in his left knee in Tennessee football’s loss to South Carolina on Saturday, Tennessee announced Sunday. The Vols quarterback will miss the remainder of the season, and his Tennessee career is over.

“Forever a Tennessee legend and the ultimate teammate, we know Hendon will come back stronger than ever as he embarks on a promising NFL career,” the Tennessee announcement said.

Hooker, Tennessee’s Heisman Trophy hopeful, went down with a non-contact leg injury in the fourth quarter of Tennessee’s 63-38 loss at South Carolina at Williams-Brice Stadium.

Hooker tumbled for a 1-yard loss and stayed down on the field with 11:28 to play. He was stringing out an option play when his left leg buckled when he planted. He went down without being touched by a defender.
