Merrell has missed the last three games with the kidney issue. "He's okay. Jamal has been cleared to play and he will go on Thursday night and he will be the starter," Rutgers coach Kyle Flood said on Monday. "He passed all the tests and the qualifications that he needed to (pass) to get cleared. Physically, he looked like he could've played last week but he wasn't medically ready to play. Now he's cleared." Mon, Oct 7, 2013 07:10:00 PM

Rutgers senior LB Jamal Merrell is doubtful to play against Arkansas with a kidney issue.

Merrell is a two year starter and one of the more consistent players on the Rutgers defensive unit. "I don’t really want to discuss it but it is a kidney situation and Jamal was with us (Sunday) in the meetings, but he is not at this point able to practice," head coach Kyle Flood said. "I do expect him back after the bye week." The Scarlet Knights' bye week follows this weekend's contest.
