Re-injuring an ACL will sideline North Carolina linebacker Darius Lipford for the entire 2012 season, according to multiple reports

Worst yet, Lipford sustained the injury last Thursday while undergoing rehab for the very ACL tear he suffered in the Independence Bowl against Missouri last December.

Lipford will redshirt this season, though he was apparently already on track to do that anyway. He’ll undergo surgery next month and have two years of eligibility remaining starting in 2013.

Lipford started four games last season and recorded 42 tackles.
