Scheelhaase expected to miss Saturday's Illini game

Illinois quarterback Nathan Scheelhaase, who sprained his left ankle two weeks ago, is expected to miss his second straight game when the Illini host Charleston Southerntomorrowat Memorial Stadium, according to a report from the Chicago Tribune.
Reilly O'Toole is expected to make his second consecutive start, a week after throwing for 54 yards on 10-of-14 passing in a 45-14 loss to Arizona State. He also ran 12 times for 12 yards, while junior back-up Miles Osei threw for 47 yards and ran for 32 on the ground.
Scheelhaase practiced all week and Tuesday said he expected to play, but Illinois sports information director Kent Brown said head coach Tim Beckman did not feel his starting quarterback "was ready for game speed."
It may not make a difference, though. Charleston Southern (0-2) has lost its two games by 35 and 21 points, respectively, this year. The slow start comes on the heels of an 0-11 season in 2011 and a 3-8 season in 2010.
