ST. LOUIS (AP) -Illinois quarterback Juice Williams left the game against Missouri early in the second quarter Saturday after taking a shot to the head.
Williams, a sophomore, ran to the right side and took what appeared to be a helmet-to-helmet hit from Missouri's Hardy Ricks. No penalty was called. A team spokeswoman said he would sit out the rest of the game for precautionary reasons, but did not disclose any injury.
Williams started to get up, then remained on the turf for several minutes while trainers attended to him, before walking off with help. He was replaced by redshirt freshman Eddie McGee.
Williams started nine games last season, going 1-8. He was 103-261 (39 percent) with nine touchdowns and nine interceptions. He gained 576 yards rushing (3.7 yards per carry).
Williams gained 15 yards on six carries and was 6-for-9 for 59 yards in just under 20 minutes against the Tigers.
