Houston QB D’Eriq King to miss rest of season with torn meniscus


Houston quarterback D’Eriq King will miss the remainder of the season with a torn meniscus in his right knee, a source with knowledge of the injury confirmed Friday.

King, who leads the FBS with 50 touchdowns responsible for this season, suffered the injury in the second quarter of the Cougars’ 48-17 win over Tulane on Thursday night.

The Houston Chronicle first reported King’s diagnosis.

A junior, King has been the linchpin of Houston’s offense, the fourth-highest scoring unit in the country. He suffered the non-contact injury after handing the ball off late in the second quarter and carrying out a fake. King grabbed his right knee and fell to the turf immediately afterward and was later carted off. Houston coach Major Applewhite said late Thursday night that King could not straighten out his leg.
