Hurricanes coach Al Golden was noncommittal Tuesday when asked if Brad Kaaya would still be the team’s starting quarterback when Ryan Williams, five months removed from ACL surgery, is cleared by doctors to begin playing full speed.
“When that time comes, then we'll deal with that competition and the reps and all that,” Golden said. “Right now it's Brad and Jake [ Heaps] until that time.”
Golden said seeking a medical redshirt for Williams this season is “not part of the discussion right now.”
“His job is to get back,” Golden said. “He's been working his tail off. Let's just see where that goes. As soon as we cross that next hump — when we feel he can protect himself from a blitz, from all different angles and not have to premeditate where he's going and just react to it — when we all feel good about it … then we'll take that next step.”Malik Rosier
