Illinois head coach Ron Zook has suspended linebacker Jonathan Brown one game after the sophomore appeared to intentionally knee a Northwestern player in the groin during this past Saturday's game. Brown is tied for second on the Illini defense with 30 tackles, including six for loss and two sacks.

He was credited with a team-high 11 tackles during the 38-35 win over Northwestern, but was also penalized twice, once for roughing the passer and another for unsportsmanlike conduct when he delivered the cheap shot to a Northwestern lineman. Brown will sit out the 16th-ranked Illini's game this coming Saturday at Indiana.
