Nebraska senior linebacker Collin Miller was taken off the field on a stretcher during Saturday's game against Illinois at Memorial Stadium.

Miller, a team captain, appeared to suffer a neck/head injury at the 13:38 mark of the fourth quarter as he combined with Casey Rogers on a tackle of Mike Epstein.

The helmets of Miller and Epstein connected as Epstein pushed forward on a run play up the middle.

Miller was down on the turf for a long stretch of time, and trainers put a brace on to stabilize his neck. Miller moved very little while being attended, and players for both teams took a knee during the stoppage in play.
