Golden Gophers quarterback, Tanner Morgan, was carted off the field with ten minutes remaining in the game against Illinois. The Fighting Illini linebacker, Gabe Jacas, appeared to punch Tanner Morgan in the head while making a tackle. Gabe and another teammate took Tanner to the ground.
Tanner Morgan stayed down a bit longer than usual and exited the field to the injury tent on the sidelines. Moments later he was carted out of the game into the locker room for further evaluation.
The veteran Gopher QB is 79 for 112 passing for 1143 yards this year, with seven touchdowns and four interceptions. Without the sixth year senior QB in the game, Minnesota was unable to close the gap and ended the game with a loss of 14-26.
