New Orleans Saints defensive end Hau’oli Kikaha has sustained a torn ACL, reports Mike Garafolo of Fox Sports.

The injury is likely to keep Kikaha sidelined for the upcoming season.

Kikaha previously tore his ACL twice during college while playing for the Washington Huskies. He successfully recovered from the injury to his left knee in both 2011 and 2012, leading the nation in sacks in 2014.

The Saints finished 7–9 in 2015.
