The Arizona Wildcats have lost yet another defender to an ACL tear, and this time the injured player was one who suffered the same fate last year. Adam Hall, starting safety, injured his knee while hitting receiver Sean Willett during Arizona's spring game on Saturday.

There's no official prognosis on just how long he'll be out, and it's not clear whether he hurt the same knee (his right) as last year. Last year, he was one of four Wildcats to tear an ACL before the season even began, battling his way back to the field mid-season before re-aggravating it and finally closing down in October.
When he's been healthy enough to play, Hall has been very effective. In his last 14 games, the heavy hitter has 64 tackles, two interceptions, 5.5 tackles for loss, three pass break-ups and a forced fumble.
The good news: he does still have a redshirt year available.
