New England Patriots linebacker Raekwon McMillan will miss the upcoming season after sustaining a torn ACL in practice earlier this week, the NFL Network reported Saturday.

McMillan, who was injured during a special teams drill on Tuesday, also saw an ACL tear wipe out his 2017 rookie season with the Miami Dolphins.

The 25-year-old recorded 27 tackles and one forced fumble while playing in all 16 games (four starts) last season with the Las Vegas Raiders. He signed with the Patriots in free agency.

McMillan has 204 tackles and three forced fumbles in 45 games (32 starts) since being selected by the Dolphins in the second round of the 2017 NFL Draft.
