Illinois Linebacker Trulon Henry Injured in Shooting

University of Illinois senior linebacker Trulon Henry was injured in a off-campus shooting early Sunday morning in Urbana. Henry, a two-year starter for the Illini (he moved from safety to linebacker this year) was shot in the hand and underwent surgery.
