Happy Halloween everyone! We have injury updates. Unfortunately Leonte Carroo will not play today. The hope has to be sitting him out today will help him be healthy down the stretch.
Rutgers star WR Leonte Carroo will not play today against Wisconsin, per source: https://t.co/UQAXpteDUC— Dan Duggan (@DDuggan21) October 31, 2015
Blessuan Austin is available to play but Jarius Adams will start. It will be interesting to see how much Austin does play.
Rutgers just sent a release confirming my report that Carroo is out. CB Blessuan Austin will play, but Jarius Adams will start.— Dan Duggan (@DDuggan21) October 31, 2015
Janarion Grant will play and will need to step up in Carroo's absence!
Janarion Grant looks like a full-go in warmups, as expected.— Dan Duggan (@DDuggan21) October 31, 2015
As for Wisconsin starting running back Corey Clement, he is not listed on the two deep depth chart but is on the field warming up.
Doesn't mean he'll play, but put more stock in warmups than what the depth chart says https://t.co/x6gYCWmNiQ— Dan Duggan (@DDuggan21) October 31, 2015
The Badgers are banged up across the offensive line and now have two defensive starters out as well.
Rutgers has a chance today. It's Halloween and weird things happen on a normal weekend of college football. Wisconsin is significantly more banged up on the injury front than Rutgers. Not having Carroo is a major loss, but Andre Patton and Carlton Agudosi have proven to be more than capable. It's up the quarterback Chris Laviano to get them the ball. Also, Rutgers success running on the Wisconsin defense will be the key to the game.
Join us in the comment section during the game. This a major swing game, as the difference between 4-4 and 3-5 are immense in how the outlook of the rest of the season will be viewed. Go RU! #ChopWisconsin
