UNLV senior wide receiver Brandon Presley will miss next season with a torn ACL in his left knee.

Presley suffered the injury in practice Friday and will undergo surgery.

“It’s a big loss of for us,” coach Tony Sanchez said Monday.

Presley received a medical redshirt after missing nearly the entire 2016 season , so he has a traditional redshirt season available.

He led the Rebels last season with 35 catches for 434 yards and three touchdowns. This year before, Presley caught 34 passes for 552 yards and three touchdowns.

“The big thing about Presley, he’s the backside post guy,” Sanchez said. “He’s that vertical threat. He’s the guy that runs those slants. He’s so savvy and has got so much experience. We’ve got some time to deal with it.”
