Greg Reid's fresh start at Valdosta State has been put on hold indefinitely.

According to Coley Harvey of the Orlando Sentinel, Reid suffered a torn ACL during fall camp and will miss the 2012 season.

The Valdosta Daily Times reported that Reid injured the knee last Friday while trying to make a cut to elude a defender.

Reid was dismissed from Florida State on Aug. 1 for a violation of team rules. Reid was arrested and charged with possession of marijuana, resisting arrest and perjury. It was his second arrest in as many years.

But it gave Reid a chance to enroll at Valdosta State, which was near his home in Valdosta, Ga., and start fresh as he readied for a potential NFL career.

The injury actually comes on the heels of a movement by Florida State fans to show their solidarity for the dismissed defensive back. Last Tuesday, Seminoles fans started a public group on Facebook called "Raise 5 for Greg." The plan was (and probably still is) to raise five fingers during Saturday's Florida State-Murray State game to show support and appreciation for Reid, who wore No. 5 while with the Seminoles.
