Lyle McCombs is in uniform and is expected to play for Connecticut today, the school confirmed, one day after the running back's arrest for alleged Second Degree Breach of Peace, a misdemeanor.
McCombs enters today's game at No. 22 Rutgers as the Big East's third-leading rusher, netting 452 yards and four touchdowns through five games for the Huskies.
McCombs, of course, could see a decrease in playing time or not start as punishment, so keep an eye on Martin Hyppolite, who emerged last week for UConn with a 50-yard touchdown run. He carried it six times last Saturday for 60 yards and, with 10 carries on the season, has the second-most carries among UConn running backs.
