Dufrene Could be Out in Fighting Illini Opener Against Mizzou
CHAMPAIGN, Ill. (AP) -- Illinois football coach Ron Zook says Daniel Dufrene is questionable for Saturday's season-opener against Missouri with an ankle injury.

Dufrene didn't practice Monday after hurting his ankle last week.

Zook says team officials are building a special brace for the ankle, but he wasn't sure if that will allow Dufrene to play.

The senior running back was the team's second-leading rusher last season with 663 yards. Only quarterback Juice Williams had more.

Illinois and Missouri play at 2:40 p.m. Saturday in St. Louis. The game is being broadcast on ESPN.
