Illinois suffered more than one loss Saturday, as starting senior linebackler Trulon Henry was shot in the hand at an off-campus party and will miss the remainder of the regular season.

According to a statement issued Sunday by the Illini athletic department, Henry had been called to the party be a teammate to help encourage other team members to leave. He was one of three people shot in the incident. According to a report in the Champaign News-Gazette, the injury was not life-threatening but required Henry to undergo surgery Sunday.

Ron Zook said Sunday about "five or six" players were in attendance at the party, most of them underclassmen backups. He did not expect disciplinary action to be taken against them.

Per the official Illinois statement, Henry's "status for a possible bowl appearance" is yet to be determined. He was the Illini's ninth-leading tackler this season after transitioning from safety, where he started all 13 games in 2010.

Henry had two tackles (one solo, one assisted) in his team's 31-14 home loss to Michigan Saturday.

Did I once state my race or religion you selfcentered prick?

Please go get a job.  I'm assuming you don't have one (and don't say it's because white people took them).  Honestly, they're always hiring at McDonald's for uneducated idiots like yourself.

You obviously have never received a proper education tiredofcrap.  I would love to live in China and all with their communist government.  Oh, and if you want to have more then two kids China is a great place to live.

Get it through your thick skull that times have changed and the United States is no longer a segregating race affiliated country.  Sure, there will always be people who hate black people and people who hate white people, but to say the country as a whole is racist makes you sound ignorant and prejudiced.

First of all, it's too bad for Trulon Henry. He's well-respected by his teammates. He screwed up when he was an 18-year-old, but he was given a second chance and he made the most of it. He also switched positions this year to help the team. It's too bad for a defense that's played hard, but has been sabotaged by an ineffective offense and atrocious special teams. Just one more setback in Zook's final season(I hope).Hopefully, Trulon's playing days aren't over, and he gets a shot at the next level. If not he'll have a degree from a great university.
As for Big Daddy, you're the ignorant racist. There's no doubt that if you're posting on this sight, you're cheering every Saturday for the same kids you're ripping on here. If you don't like the reduced academic requirements for athletes in Division1 athletics, then you need to adopt an Ivy League school or an NFL team to cheere for. Tiredofcrap, you need to stop blaming the system. Sure it's flawed, and there have been some racial atrocities in our history. Stop making excuses and start providing solutions. Let's start with black men becoming role models in their own homes. the original Irish immigrants were a lot like the hispanic immigrants of present day. They too took menial jobs and worked very hard to survive. Most were commited to providing for and supporting their family no matter how many jobs they worked. Sure many of them drank too much, but they were present for their families. A lot like the non-criminal Hispanic immigrants today.
BTW, this is about a studen-athlete getting shot. The concern should be for him.
