Andrew Brown's first round of spring workouts as a member of the Virginia football team have come to an early end.
UVa coach Mike London said on a Wednesday teleconference that Brown won't practice again this spring because of a turf toe injury suffered about two weeks ago.
"It's unfortunate. It's a freak accident that occurred," London said.
Brown was considered one of the top defensive line prospects in the country, and a consensus five-star recruit coming out of Oscar Smith High School in Chesapeake. The defensive tackle was named the 2013 Gatorade national player of the year, finishing his senior year with 93 tackles, including 18 sacks, and nine forced fumbles.
Brown enrolled at UVa in January to get a head start on his college football career. Before getting hurt, Brown was seeing time with the first-team defense during UVa spring practices.
"Now his learning is in the film room, and watching practices," London said. "It's a little bit of a setback, but he'll be ready to go in the fall."
