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.
Fellow ILBs Will Honas and Luke Reimer are kneeling together at the goal line, holding each others hands and looking at the ground as medical personnel prepares Miller for the stretcher. Just brutal.— Parker Gabriel (@HuskerExtraPG) November 21, 2020
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.
