Champaign - Illinois sophomore wide receiver Mikey Dudek will miss the 2016 football season, the team confirmed Friday night.
Dudek suffered a knee injury just days into the spring practice season, later reported as a season-ending ACL tear.
It's the same knee injury, in the same knee, that forced Dudek to miss the 2015 season. He's expected to have surgery next week.
Dudek was a freshman All-American in 2014.
