Ricky Smalling Out For Season

The junior wideout will miss the remainder of the season after having knee surgery.

Per Jeremy Werner of 247Sports, Illini wide receiver Ricky Smalling will miss the remainder of the season after undergoing knee surgery.

The junior wideout recorded 24 receptions for 225 yards and one touchdown, which made him the third-leading receiver on the team before sustaining a knee injury. This is another big-time loss for the Illini. As seen last week, it’s next-man-up football for Illinois. They were shorthanded for the Michigan State game but were still able to defy the odds and pull off a dramatic upset. It’s a tough loss, but the team has to get through it. Luckily, Josh Imatorbhebhe has been a workhorse all season and Donny Navarro has stepped up in recent weeks to help carry the load.
