Hello From The Press Box, Updated Game Day Injury Report And Depth Chart


Greetings From HPSS as Rutgers takes on WSU

Greetings From HPSS as Rutgers takes on WSU

Rutgers will need all the defensive backs they have as they face the Washington State Cougars and their Air-Raid offense led by head coach Mike Leach.

Sporting a young and inexperienced secondary, redshirt freshman safety Kiy Hester is questionable, but has a good shot to play and provide depth after he sat out last week against an offense that spreads you out and creates one-on-one matchups.

Starting defensive end Djwany Mera is questionable for the game which means redshirt freshman Jimmy Hogan could get more playing time.

Running back Paul James and his brother Ronnie, a cornerback, are both probable. In addition, defensive end Kemoko Turay, who had a sack in spot playing time against the Spartans, has been upgraded to probable.

Defensive tackle Darius Hamilton remains out for the contest.

Furthermore, after being suspended for the first half last week, senior wide receiver Leonte Carroo and his three touchdowns in a 7:47 time span in the third quarter last week is starting along side redshirt junior Andre Patton.

Third-year sophomore Chris Laviano gets the nod at quarterback for the Scarlet Knights.

Rutgers (1-0) is coming off a 63-13 victory over Norfolk State last Saturday while Washington State (0-1) dropped a 24-17 decision to Portland State in rainy weather.

Stormy conditions might hit Piscataway for the 3:30 p.m. kickoff from High Point Solutions stadium. If you were scared off by the forecast, it will be televised live on ESPNU with Roy Philpott and Tom Ramsey on the call.

Keep it locked to for post game recap and more.
