Illini QB Wes Lunt practiced Tuesday

Illini quarterback Wes Lunt practiced on Tuesday after missing last week with a back injury

Illini coach Lovie Smith said Wes Lunt's return to the practice field was a "step back in the right direction."

None of the Illini quarterbacks were available to the media on Tuesday, though sophomore Chayce Crouch, who started at Rutgers in relief of Lunt, spoke with reporters on Monday.

Smith talks about Lunt, his freshman defensive tackles and Jim Harbaugh in the video above.
