Eric LeGrand seriously injured

2

Defensive tackle Eric LeGrand appeared to suffer a serious neck injury during today's Rutgers/Army game. He made a tackle on a kickoff return, and then was unable to move on the field, before being carted out. The injury is reportedly to LeGrand's neck. Coach Schiano cited privacy concerns in his post-game presser for not divulging any more details, and left in a hurry to be with LeGrand at a hospital in Hackensack. Eric's immediate safety right now obviously takes precedence over dissecting today's game, or any speculation as to his future. For the non-Rutgers fans who are not familiar with LeGrand, he is the team's third defensive tackle and plays starting-caliber minutes. He is universally beloved, and seen as a future team captain. It is hard to imagine a bigger loss for Rutgers football on or off of the field. Update: according to a school press release LeGrand has been diagnosed with a spinal cord injury and underwent surgery last night. He currently is paralyzed from the neck down.
