Louisville suffered more than a 39-25 loss on Thursday night when it played at North Carolina State. Unfortunately, they might have lost one its most versatile and important playmakers in Malik Williams. Near the end of the game when the Cardinals were in desperation mode, he was tackled and landed awkwardly on his arm after catching a pass from Lamar Jackson. Here was the play:

ESPN did not show a replay as the injury was too much even for them. But if you watch near the middle of the video you can see Williams run toward the sideline with his arm completely limp and clearly in pain. Before the game he had 244 rushing yards, 120 receiving yards and two total touchdowns. In this game, he had 30 yards rushing as well as one reception for nine yards.
