Minnesota quarterback Tanner Morgan left Saturday’s game against No. 24 Illinois in the fourth quarter with an apparent head injury.

On third-and-7, Morgan took a run and was hit in the helmet by a pair of Illini defenders. He remained on the ground before trainers helped him off the field to the medical tent and then was taken to the locker room.

Before going out, Morgan completed just 4 of 12 passes for 21 yards with an interception. He also rushed for 23 yards on six carries and found the end zone once.

Athan Kaliakmanis took over at quarterback for the Golden Gophers.
