CHAMPAIGN, Ill. (AP)
Illini coach Ron Zook says Henry is recovering from hand surgery following the shooting that Urbana police say also wounded two other people before 3:30 a.m. Sunday at a large house party.
Zook says a handful of Illinois players - largely underclassmen - were at the party but were not injured. Zook says Henry only came to the party to clear out the other players when the gathering turned chaotic.
Henry is a two-year starter for the Illini (6-4, 2-4 Big Ten), who has lost four straight games.
Henry is ninth on the team in tackles and has two interceptions.
