Illinois WR Millines (Shoulder) Doubtful v. Louisiana Tech
News:Darius Millines, who has been dealing with a shoulder injury, is considered doubtful for this week's contest between Illinois and Louisiana Tech, USA Today reports.
Analysis:Darius Millines has to this point in the season been a non-presence for fantasy owners, collecting just three catches for nine yards. His absence Saturday against Louisiana Tech, therefore, should not affect starting rosters in any significant fashion.
News: Illinois coach Ron Zook said that wide receiver Darius Milliness (foot) looks good in practice, a sign he may finally be ready to play.
Analysis: Having Milliness on the field would be a boost for the Illini passing game. A.J. Jenkins has carried the load, but having Milliness there as a threat could open things up and keep secondaries honest.
News: @illinifootball tweets that Illinois coach Ron Zook expects wide receiver Darius Millines (foot) to play this week at Purdue.
Analysis: Millines has not been a factor in the Illini offense since posting 119 yards in week one.
News: Illinois wide receiver Darius Millines (foot) "probably won't play" against Ohio State, according to offensive coordinator Paul Petrino
Analysis: Millines is experiencing problems with his previously fractured left foot. A.J. Jenkins will continue to see most of the targets from Nathan Scheelhaase, and rightfully so.
News: Illinois wide receiver Darius Millines is doubtful for the game at Indiana this Saturday. Millines is experiencing pain in his left foot, the same foot he had surgery on last spring.
Analysis: Millines was starting to come on prior to the injury, which also kept him out last week. He's a talented wide receiver, and one to watch out for next year.
News: Illinois wide receiver Darius Millines caught five passes for 119 yards and a touchdown for Illinois on Saturday.
Analysis: Millines averaged 23.8 yards per reception in his first extensive action of his career. Put him on your watch list.
News: With such a dynamic star like Nathan Scheelhaase at quarterback, offensive coordinator Paul Petrino needs some guys to emerge as possible targets. Two such targets are receiver Darius Millines and tight end Evan Wilson. Millines was a dynamo in the return game last year while Wilson started 11 games as a true freshman.
Analysis: Even without Mikel LeShoure in the lineup, the Illini offense should be plenty explosive as long as some playmakers emerge alongside Scheelhaase.
