Illinois' Liuget, Hoomanawanui doubtful to return

Posted by ESPN.com's Adam Rittenberg

Illinois likely will be without two starters for the rest of today's game against No. 15 Penn State.

Defensive tackle Corey Liuget and tight end Michael Hoomanawanui both are doubtful to return after sustaining ankle injuries in the first half. Liuget is the anchor of the interior line, while Hoomanawanui is one of the league's best tight ends, even if he has been underutilized this year.
