Rutgers players to honor paralyzed teammate with 'Believe' decals
Rutgers players are preparing to play a football game for the first time since one of their teammates was paralyzed on a kickoff return last Saturday.
Eric LeGrand (No. 52 above) continues to be hospitalized at Hackensack University Medical Center, where he underwent spinal surgery and his family and friends continue to hope for a miracle. There have been no further updates on LeGrand's condition.
The Scarlet Knights will honor LeGrand with white stickers that say "Believe" on the front of their helmets when they play Pittsburgh in a Big East game Saturday. "When they look at each other they'll see it," Rutgers Coach Greg Schiano said.
"We're approaching [the game] the way Eric approached practice -- with a lot of joy," said cornerback David Rowe. "He was happy just to be there. A lot of guys have tried to pick up for him and practice the way he did. That's what the mood has been."
