University of Miami sophomore running back Duke Johnson will miss the remainder of the season with a fractured right ankle, a team official confirmed prior to head coach Al Golden's teleconference Sunday afternoon.
Golden said Johnson will have surgery this week.
"I feel badly for the young man, for any of these young people that get injured," Golden said. "Phillip Dorsett, obviously now Randy. I think the biggest thing is I'm disappointed for Randy because he was really starting to understand how to be a good runner. He was realty starting to convert talent to skill."
Johnson, who finished with 23 carries for 97 yards in the 41-14 loss to Florida State, got hurt on a fourth-and-2 play in FSU territory with under two minutes left in the third quarter.
Hit one yard short of the first down, he began to go down from the initial contact before a few players fell on top of him, including one of his own offensive linemen. Johnson's right leg bent underneath him at an awkward angle.
