Johnny Garcia out with torn ACL

Wake Forest nose tackle Johnny Garcia is out for the season with a torn ACL, a big blow for the rebuilding Deacons.

Garcia was hurt in practice Saturday, and an MRI confirmed Garcia tore his ACL, the school announced Monday.

He was slated to anchor a defensive line that lost three starters from a year ago, including All-ACC selection Nikita Whitlock.

Garcia played in all 12 games in both 2012 and 2013, seeing action on the defensive line and on special teams.
