Casey Thompson injury: FAU QB out for season after former Texas, Nebraska starter tears ACL, per report

Thompson was helped off the field against Clemson after suffering the knee injury halfway through the second quarter following a hit by Tigers defensive end Cade Denhoff.

He rejoined Tom Herman in Boca Raton, Florida, the coach that recruited him to the Longhorns. In four seasons of action with the two programs, Thompson threw for 4,829 yards, ran for 187 yards and added 57 touchdowns. 

Thompson won the FAU quarterback job out of camp and started three games, posting a 1-2 record. He completed 63% of passes for 509 yards, five touchdowns and five interceptions before suffering the season-ending knee injury. Thompson could be eligible for a medical redshirt as he will not participate in more than 30% of games. 

With Thompson sidelined, FAU will likely turn to the Central Michigan transfer Daniel Richardson. The undersized junior started 21 games for the Chippewas under former Florida coach Jim McElwain, throwing for more than 5,300 yards and 43 touchdowns. In relief of Thompson, Richardson threw for 120 yards…
