Wake Forest QB Hinton out 2-4 weeks with knee sprain

WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. (AP) Wake Forest says quarterback Kendall Hinton will miss 2-4 weeks with a sprained ligament in his left knee.

Team spokesman Steve Shutt said Monday that Hinton sprained his posterior cruciate ligament Saturday night in a victory over Delaware.

Hinton went down without contact during a first-quarter running play. The sophomore from Durham was making his second career start after leading all four scoring drives in a 24-14 win at Duke.

That timeline means Hinton will miss this week's game at Indiana and next week's visit to North Carolina State. The Demon Deacons (3-0) play host to Syracuse on Oct. 8 and visit No. 13 Florida State the following week.

The injury likely means John Wolford regains his starting job. He has started 25 of 26 games since 2014.
