For the second time in three years, Logan Winkles‘ season has been cut short before it even started because of a significant injury to one of his knees.

The latest injury occurred Thursday, with the North Carolina State fullback tearing the ACL in his right knee during a team drill.  The 2013 season for Winkles, who was hit with a drunk-driving charge earlier this offseason, is obviously over.

In 2010, Winkles tore the ACL in his other knee and missed that season as well.

“Logan has had a lot of injuries, so it’s unfortunate,” head coach Dave Doeren said. “It’s part of the game, our guys understand that. The next-man-in philosophy will take place right there.”

Winkles started five of the 13 games in which he played last season.  While he didn’t record a carry, he did total 90 yards on 10 receptions, with two of those catches going for touchdowns.
