Jon beutjer dating
After Illinois quarterback Jon Beutjer took a hit at the end of the first half of Saturday’s game against UCLA, his status for next Saturday’s game against Western Michigan remains uncertain.The sixth-year senior was hit in the chest as he tried to pass on the Illini’s last possession before halftime. In Monday’s weekly press conference, head coach Ron Turner said Beutjer felt better but was taking things day by day.“He feels a lot better today – we just have to wait and see how it goes tomorrow – that’s the key,” Turner said.“Yesterday I made the statement that it was day to day.He is showing improvement; all the x-rays and scans came out negative so we are fine that way.It’s just a matter on how quickly it’s going to heal, how quickly he is going to be pain free and the swelling is going to go down and all that stuff.I talked to the doctors, they just don’t know, it’s truly day to day.” Redshirt freshman Brad Bower took the reins in Saturday’s game after Beujter left.
“If there is not, and he’s healthy, then we will play him.
We want him to be 100 percent healthy and ready to go if he is going to go back out there.” Successful switch Senior Kelvin Hayden, who converted to cornerback last spring, leads the team in tackles with 17, one for a loss.
Hayden, who was the team’s leading receiver last year, has also been responsible for three turnovers, including a forced fumble in his first game at his new position.
Hayden ranks ninth in the Big Ten in tackling, averaging 8.5 tackles a game.
He led the Illini against UCLA with a career-high 11 tackles and two passes-broken up.
“I thought Kelvin Hayden played a very solid, good game,” Turner said.
