Illini’s Brown Injures Knee


DeKalb native Dre Brown can catch a break. For the second straight season he’ll sit out for the Fighting Illini following a knee injury.

The redshirt freshman runningback tore the ACL in his left knee during spring practice Monday. Last spring he tore the ACL in his right knee.

Brown sent out the following tweet Tuesday night:

“Don’t know what God has planned for me next. If football may be in the future for me or not. Please keep me in your thoughts and prayers. This will be a long process with a lot of question marks and hopefully I find some answers a long the way….God bless! Go Illini!”
