Miami Hurricanes junior safety Anthony Reddick underwent successful surgery Monday to repair a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee and will likely miss the entire 2007 season.

The surgery was performed by Dr. John Uribe at Doctors Hospital in Coral Gables. Reddick will begin rehabilitation immediately.

Reddick has had a turbulent career in Miami. In 2004, he was named to the All-ACC freshman team. He finished that season with 73 tackles, one sack and one interception.

Reddick then missed nearly the entire 2005 campaign after tearing his right ACL in the second quarter of the Hurricanes' season opener against Florida State. He registered six tackles before suffering the injury.

In 2006, Reddick was one of several players suspended for a sideline-clearing brawl with Florida International. He missed four games after video showed him swinging his helmet during the melee.
