CHAMPAIGN, Ill. (AP)
Illinois spokesman Kent Brown says the 6-4, 215-pound Dickinson was injured during a scrimmage last week.
Dickinson was competing with Houston Bates for a starting job. Dickinson played in 11 games as a freshman, primarily on special teams.
Illinois expects him to redshirt this season and return in 2013 with three years of eligibility remaining.
