Rutgers QB Mike Dare will transfer.

Dare is the third Scarlet Knights QB to transfer this week, following Chris Laviano and Hayden Rettig. "I came to a pro-style offense, a coaching change happened, and I'm not mad at it," said Dare, who wasn't a fit for the spread. The 6-foot-5, 220-pounder has three years of eligibility remaining. Assuming he sticks in the FBS, he'll sit out next year due to NCAA transfer rules.

Rutgers junior QB Chris Laviano will transfer.

Like fellow transferring signal-caller Hayden Rettig, Laviano is immediately eligible to play wherever he goes as a graduate. Laviano began the year as starter after finishing last year as the No. 1. He lost the job to Gio Rescigno in October. Rescigno will try to defend his starting job against Zach Allen next summer.

Rutgers redshirt junior QB Hayden Rettig will transfer.

The former four-star recruit flamed out at LSU before flaming out at Rutgers. We'd guess he's hoping to find an advantageous FCS situation to slide into for his last year of eligibility. Rettig is immediately eligible to play wherever he goes as a postgraduate.

Rutgers WR Andre Patton "presents match-up problems outside for smaller defensive backs," writes NFL.com's Chad Reuter.

The 6-foot-3, 210-pound Patton gave a shorter corner, Minnesota cornerback Jalen Myrick, fits on Saturday. "Patton's strider speed, foot quickness, and big body can gain him inside position on deep routes," Reuter wrote. "On one such route, he boxed out Myrick and high-pointed the ball in the end zone for a score."

Rutgers junior QB Chris Laviano has been benched in favor of redshirt sophomore QB Giovanni Rescigno.

"Chris has done everything he’s been asked to do. I can’t thank Chris enough and really appreciate what he’s done," said HC Chris Ash. In seven games this season, Laviano has passed for just 748 yards (48.3% completions) with a 5/2 TD/INT ratio. A sign of the disparity in the Big Ten -- Ohio State and Michigan combined to beat the hapless Scarlet Knights by a score of 136-0 in back-to-back contests to open the month of October.

Rutgers redshirt sophomore QB Giovanni Rescigno will start against Minnesota on Saturday.

"We need a spark. We need to get something going offensively. Excited to see what Gio can do with the offense moving forward," said HC Chris Ash. Rescigno came on in relief of an ineffective Chris Laviano against Illinois on Saturday, finishing out the game by completing 10-of-18 passes for 120 yards, a touchdown and an interception. ESPN graded him as a four-star prospect out of high school in 2014, but there is no fantasy intrigue in this offense. The Scarlet Knights sit at just 2-5 for the season as a whole.

Rutgers head coach Chris Ash called his QB competition open following the school's 24-7 loss to Illinois.

"It's completely open," Ash told the media after the loss. "We haven't had enough production at the quarterback position in the first half of the season, and we've got to open it up." Previous starter Chris Laviano was pulled from two straight games, but was later trotted out as the start the following week. Giovanni Rescigno, freshman Tylin Oden and TCU transfer Zach Allen are all possibilities to start against Minnesota.

Rutgers head coach Chris Ash is sticking with junior QB Chris Laviano as starting quarterback.

Ash benched Laviano for most of the Michigan game to questionable results. Zach Allen ended up playing most of the final three quarters in that lopsided loss. "Laviano's our starting quarterback," Ash said. "Has been for the first six games. We'll continue to go through the week of practice and see how the others are developing and continue to improve." Laviano has completed 47.4 percent of his passes for a Big Ten-worst 114.5 yards per game with a 5/2 TD/INT rate.

Rutgers redshirt senior defensive end Quanzell Lambert is out for the remainder of the season after suffering a right knee injury in Saturday's game against Iowa.

Per NJ.com, Lambert likely isn't a candidate for a sixth year of eligibility because his injury occurred just past the NCAA's rule of 30-percent of games having been played. Lambert was named the team's best defensive lineman by the coaching staff last season.

Rutgers senior WR Janarion Grant's season-ending right ankle injury occurred just past the cut-off to apply for a medical redshirt year.

The NCAA says a player applying for a medical redshirt cannot have participated in more than 30 percent of the season. After playing Iowa, Rutgers is one-third of the way through its 12-game schedule. The 5-foot-10, 180-pound speedster broke his ankle against the Hawkeyes. His collegiate career, barring a miracle, is over.

Rutgers senior WR Janarion Grant will miss the remainder of the season with a right ankle injury.

He was carted off during the game after producing a 76-yard play. Rutgers, at 2-2, is the school's most explosive player, creating huge gains at receiver and as a ball carrier. Jawuan Harris will step into the No. 2 receiver role.

Rutgers WR Janarion Grant was carted off the field with a possible serious injury leg injury in Saturday's game against Iowa.

The 5-foot-11, 175-pound wideout was injured on a 76-yard play that nearly reached the end zone. He took a screen pass from Chris Laviano to the Iowa 3-yard line, with his right leg stepped on by cornerback Desmond King at the end of the run. Grant is on the sideline with his right leg heavily wrapped. If he misses time, Rutgers loses its only playmaker. Grant leads the Big Ten in all-purpose yardage with 562. He returns kicks, plays a mean receiver and serves as a Wildcat quarterback.

Rutgers senior WR Janarion Grant went off in Saturday's 52-14 win over Howard, totaling 249 yards between rushing, receiving and kick returns while scoring three total touchdowns.

This is Grant's universe, we are merely living in it. The dynamic 5-foot-11, 175-pound wideout's highlight-play in the contest came on his 84-yard kick return with a little over five minutes gone in the first quarter. Grant danced as well as one can dance on a return, spinning, shedding tackles and generally just lighting Howard on fire on his way to the end zone. He also led the Scarlet Knights with 106 yards rushing and two touchdowns. Grant's least impactful role in this one actually came from his natural position. He caught just two passes for 24 yards.
Sep 10 - 4:09 PM

Rutgers junior QB Chris Laviano completed 11-of-22 passes for 137 yards, three touchdowns and an interception in Saturday's win over Howard.

Laviano fired touchdown passes of 22 yards, seven yards and 29 yards in the 52-14 shellacking. The 6-foot-3, 210-pounder has been held under 170 yards passing in each of Rutgers' first two games. He holds no true fantasy value.
Sep 10 - 3:57 PM

Rutgers dismissed sophomore WR Dontae Owens.

No specific reason was given for Owens' dismissal. He is the first player to face the boot during HC Chris Ash's fledgling Scarlet Knights career. The 6-foot, 197-pounder was used sparingly in 2015, appearing in just two games and failing to log statistical production in that space. He ranked as a three-star recruit out of high school.
