CHAMPAIGN, Ill. (AP) -- Illinois linebacker Henry Dickinson is out for the season with fractures in his leg and ankle.

Dickinson had been competing for a starting spot.

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.
