STORRS, Conn.— Head coach Randy Edsall announced Monday that rising senior E.J. Levenberry has suffered a torn ACL in his right knee and will undergo surgery. Rising sophomore Donovan Williams will also undergo orthoscopic surgery in his right knee to repair a meniscal injury. Both players will miss the remainder of spring practice.
“I feel terrible for E.J.,” said Edsall. “He has been working extremely hard and the injury was just one of those unfortunate instances. There was no contact, he just simply planted and the knee gave out. For Donovan, he was dealing with some discomfort last week and tried to play through it. He had an MRI and after speaking with the medical staff, it was determined that having this procedure immediately would be best.”
Levenberry suffered the injury Saturday during practice and will undergo surgery at a time to be determined later this week.
Williams will have surgery Tuesday. He had surgery in the off-season for a similar injury to his left knee.
