(TSX / STATS) -- Texas standout left tackle Connor Williams will be out indefinitely after suffering sprained knee ligaments and a meniscus tear that will require surgery, the school announced Sunday night.
Williams, a junior, was rated the No. 1 offensive tackle prospect in the nation last week by NFLDraftScout.com.
Williams suffered the injuries in the second quarter of Saturday's double-overtime loss at then-No. 4 USC. He is expected to undergo arthroscopic surgery "in the next week to 10 days," according to the school's release, which added that there was no timetable for his return.
He sustained sprains of the medial and posterior collateral ligaments.
Williams, a consensus 2016 All-American, is a virtual lock to end the Longhorns' drought of offensive linemen in the NFL Draft. The last Texas offensive lineman selected was Tony Hills in the 2008 fourth round.
Texas (1-2) is off this week before playing at Iowa State on Thursday, Sept. 28.
