Frain feels 'lucky' after bicycle accident
CHAMPAIGN - Illinois football coach Lovie Smith this spring placed a prohibition on his players from operating scooters -- a longtime tradition in the program-- for safety reasons. Ironically, and unfortunately, one of his players who regularly drove a scooter suffered a serious injury earlier this month while riding a bicycle -- which he started using following the scooter ban. Illini punter Ryan Frain was struck by a car on Neil Street the week of the North Carolina game and suffered a wound that required 25 stitches. The Illini medical team kept Frain out the next two games for fear of infection (kicker David Reisner filled in during his absence), but Frain will return to action this Saturday at Nebraska. Frain discusses the scary incident in the video above. null
