As feared, Illinois sophomore cornerback Miami Thomas tore the ACL in his knee and will miss the 2009 season, ESPN's Joe Schad reports. 

This is a tough break for Thomas, who missed most of last season after suffering somewhat of a freak injury on special teams when he tore a knee ligament against Eastern Illinois. He was in the mix for a starting job with Tavon Wilson and Dere Hicks and seemed to be having a very good camp before the injury.
