Rutgers graduate senior RB Gus Edwards ran for 94 yards and a score on 14 carries in a 14-12 win over Purdue on Saturday.

Predictably, Rutgers had nothing going in the passing game, putting the pressure on Edwards to make plays. He only made one, but it was the game's biggest play, a 74-yard touchdown run in the first quarter. Edwards (6'2/230) had run for 487 yards and five touchdowns on the year.

The November 4th contest between Rutgers and Maryland will no longer be played in Yankee Stadium as initially scheduled.

"As a result of the Yankees' amazing postseason run, there were operational concerns that called for us to make a decision at this time," said Rutgers AD Pat Hobbs in a statement. The Yankees are one win away from the World Series. With the Bronx out the window, the Scarlet Knights will now assume traditional hosting duties at High Point Solutions Stadium.

Rutgers junior QB Giovanni Rescigno (undisclosed) is day-to-day for the Scarlet Knights.

Rescigno too a knee to his lower-half on Saturday against Illinois, and was unable to play in the second half. The Scarlet Knights are a bit of a mess at the position, as backup Robert Lewis (knee) is also dealing with injury issues. If Rescigno can't go, it very well could be Kyle Bolin under center (again) for Rutgers.

Rutgers freshman QB Jonathan Lewis (ankle) is day-to-day for the Scarlet Knights ahead of their game against Purdue.

Lewis (6'3/240) aggravated his ankle after he came in to replace starter Giovanni Rescigno (undisclosed). Offensive coordinator Jerry Kill said that his removal was precautionary, and he "should be fine" for the Boilermakers. It sounds like it could be Lewis, Rescigno or Kyle Bolin under center for Rutgers this Saturday.

According to NJ.com, Rutgers freshman QB Jonathan Lewis "will continue to have a big role as a power runner within the game plan."

Coming into today, Lewis had appeared in four games off the bench as a change-of-pace runner behind Kyle Bolin. Now that Bolin has been benched for Giovanni Rescigno, expect to see Lewis enter in relief of Rescigno at times on Saturday against Illinois.

Rutgers senior QB Kyle Bolin won't start against Illinois on Saturday.

Coming off Bolin's terrible showing against Ohio State, and then last week's bye week, the Scarlet Knights have elected to turn the offense over to junior Giovanni Rescigno.

Rutgers redshirt junior QB Giovanni Rescigno will start on Saturday against Illinois.

Kyle Bolin started the opening five games of the season. Speaking of five games, Rescigno is 0-5 in his career as a starter, which was part of Rutgers' 9-game losing streak last year. Rescigno offers some rushing upside.

Rutgers senior WR Janarion Grant (leg) will play on Saturday against Illinois.

Grant (5'10/180) has missed the previous two games for the Scarlet Knights with the leg injury. When healthy, he's the best playmaker on the Rutgers' offense, and he should have a big day against the middling Illinois' defense.

Rutgers senior WR Janarion Grant (leg) has been ruled out for Saturday's game against Ohio State.

Grant continues to nurse a leg injury sustained against Mercer two weekends ago. That injury concern sidelined him for last weekend's loss to Nebraska and while Rutgers was hopeful he would be able to play against the Buckeyes, it looks like that will not be in the cards. Grant should be considered week-to-week moving forward. The Scarlet Knights are off on bye next weekend.
Sep 30 - 7:31 PM

Rutgers HC Chris Ash says that senior WR Janarion Grant hasn't been medically cleared yet, but is probable to play on Saturday against Ohio State.

Grant (5'10/180) was a late scratch in the loss to Nebraska on Saturday. He's the best playmaker on the Scarlet Knights offense, and could have a solid game against a suspect Ohio State secondary.
Sep 28 - 8:57 PM

Rutgers sophomore CB Damon Hayes will shift to the outside to cover injured starter's Blessuan Austin position.

Formerly Rutgers' slot corner, Hayes will now start opposite Isaiah Wharton on the perimeter. Austin will miss the remainder of the season after tearing his ACL in the loss to Nebraska. Austin (6'1/198) fancies himself as an aggressive corner. "I gamble because I feel like I prepare for it," Hayes said. "I watch a lot of film. So if I see something, I don't second-guess it. The position I play, you can't play passive with it. You have to be aggressive."

Rutgers coach Chris Ash believes redshirt senior WR Janarion Grant (leg) will be able to return for Saturday's game against Ohio State.

Asked by a reporter if he is concerned that Grant might not be available against the Buckeyes, Ash responded: "As of right now, no." That isn't to say that Grant is out of the woods yet. NJ.com believes he'll be a game-time decision again. Grant was a late scratch from last week's game against Nebraska.

Rutgers junior CB Blessaun Austin will miss the rest of the season after tearing his ACL on Saturday against Nebraska.

Austin (6'1/195) is a major loss for the Rutgers defense. He was an honorable-mention corner in the Big Ten in 2017, and was playing well before suffering the injury against the Cornhuskers. Austin was a potential NFL draft pick this April, but it'd be surprising if he entered his name coming off the injury.
Sep 25 - 7:08 PM

Rutgers redshirt senior WR Janarion Grant (leg) has been ruled out for Saturday's game against Nebraska.

Grant sustained a leg injury in a win over Morgan State last weekend. He was a limited practice participant during the week, but was not able to make enough headway on the health front to suit up on Saturday. There is no current timetable for Grant's return to action.
Sep 23 - 3:04 PM

Rutgers redshirt sophomore C Jonah Jackson (back) is expected to be at full strength for Saturday's game against Nebraska.

Jackson (6'4/299) sat out this past weekend's win over Morgan State, but all indications point to him being ready to rock 'n' roll when the Scarlet Knights kick off against the Cornhuskers on Saturday. "Jonah was playing pretty good for the first two games, and obviously missed the third one, but he's back," said HC Chris Ash. "Had a great week of practice and feels good." Jackson is expected to start in this weekend's contest so long as he's healthy.
