Peters will be sidelined until Nov. 21 due to COVID-19 protocols.

Illinois will face Purdue on Saturday without starting quarterback Brandon Peters, who has tested positive for COVID-19.

The Illini announced on Saturday morning that Peters and redshirt freshman tight end Griffin Moore returned positive tests. “Several other players” will also be sidelined this weekend and next week against Minnesota due to contract tracing.

Moore and Peters will miss 21 days due to Big Ten protocols and be eligible to return on Nov. 21 against Nebraska.
