Illinois starting quarterback Juice Williams left tonight's game against Illinois State after a 49-yard run early in the first quarter. Williams tripped up short of the goal line -- Jason Ford scored a 1-yard touchdown on the next play -- and hasn't returned to the field.
No word yet on Williams' injury, but it doesn't appear he'll return to the game.
Backup Eddie McGee is leading the offense now, and Illinois leads 14-0 late in the first quarter. Illinois linebacker Martez Wilson is also out of the game and likely won't return with a sprained pectoral muscle.
