CHAMPAIGN, Ill. — Illinois running back Dre Brown said he has torn the ACL in his left knee and will miss a second straight season.

Brown announced on Twitter that he suffered the injury during practice Monday.

Brown said he is not sure whether he will be able to play again, and he is beginning what he called “a long process with a lot of question marks.”

The injury comes almost exactly a year after Brown tore his right ACL. He missed his freshman season.

Brown was expected to be a primary backup for sophomore Ke’Shawn Vaughn.

Team spokesman Kent Brown said coach Lovie Smith was not available for comment.

Earlier this month, Illini receiver Mike Dudek suffered his second ACL tear in a year.
