Rutgers Player Paralyzed After Game

Amidst all the debate about long-term brain injuries, a reminder of football’s much more immediate risks: Rutgers defensive tackle Eric LeGrand has no movement below his neck after he was injured in the team’s 23-20 victory over Army on Saturday. He was injured while making a tackle in the fourth quarter. He lay motionless for seven minutes before he was carted off the field. His injury occurred at the C3-C4 level of vertebrae.
