    Hawaii head coach Norm Chow, left, watches as Hawaii running back Joey Iosefa (7) is tended to by trainers during the second half of a college football game between the Oregon State Beavers and the Hawaii Rainbow Warriors on Saturday, Sept. 6, 2014 at Aloha Stadium in Honolulu. Oregon State held on to win 38-30.

University of Hawaii outside linebacker Jerrol Garcia-Williams will miss the rest of the 2014 football season after being diagnosed with a torn ACL in his left leg, UH coach Norm Chow announced this afternoon.

What’s more, running back Joey Iosefa will miss four to six weeks after being diagnosed with an injury to his right ankle.

Both are regarded as physical and emotional leaders for their units.

Garcia-Williams, who can play both inside and outside linebacker positions, said he was injured when his cleat was caught in the Aloha Stadium turf while trying to make a tackle.

Iosefa is the Warriors’ best offensive threat. He has scored four touchdowns in the first two games, both one-possession losses to Pac-12 opponents Washington on Aug. 30 and Oregon State on Saturday.
