Notes: Chris Ash said he won’t comment on injuries unless its a long term issue....there was no update on the status of Robert Martin...Ash confirmed Ahmir Mitchell is coming to Rutgers and cannot play this season......Ash said nothing changed in his evaluation of Chris Laviano after the Washington game. No mention of the backup either, although Ash said on Saturday Gio Rescigno would have been the next QB to playDrew Mehringer indicated Josh Hicks has earned more carries, but Justin Goodwin is still slated to start against Howard.

SPECIAL TEAMS

Notes: No surprises here and it should remain the same for the whole season.

With no changes to the depth chart for week 2, the team can hope to gain more continuity ahead of Saturday’s game against Howard. Something to watch for will be how much the true freshman that played against Washington perform in game two, as well as if any other freshman see their first action in the home opener.
