Brandon Peters out for 21 days after positive COVID test

Bring in the backups.

NCAA Football: Illinois at Wisconsin Jeff Hanisch-USA TODAY Sports

Illinois starting QB Brandon Peters is out for 21 days after a positive coronavirus test.

According to DIA, Peters and redshirt-freshman tight end Griffin Moore will be out until at least Nov. 21 against Nebraska.

A news release said contact tracing also sidelined several other players for Saturday’s game and next week’s game against Minnesota.

A handful of other players are out for Saturday’s game, including backup QB Isaiah Williams. That means Purdue will likely see a heavy dose of Matt Robinson and Coran Taylor.
