CHAMPAIGN, Ill. (AP) Interim Illinois coach Bill Cubit says he doubts injured running back Josh Ferguson will be able to play Saturday against No. 22 Iowa.
Cubit said Monday that the starting back was due to see a doctor later Monday. But Cubit said that he wasn't optimistic the right-shoulder injury would allow Ferguson to play.
Illinois (4-1, 1-0 Big Ten) lost Ferguson in the first quarter of last Saturday's 14-13 win over Nebraska. The senior has 397 yards and three touchdowns on 71 carries.
