Rutgers LB Greene injures ankle

By Andrea Adelson

Rutgers linebacker Khaseem Greene injured his ankle in the team's 27-13 victory over Iowa State in the New Era Pinstripe Bowl on Friday, and had to be carted off the field with an air cast on.

Though the injury looked pretty gruesome on television, coach Greg Schiano said afterward that "our medical people think he's going to be OK. It's going to take a little while to heal."

Schiano did not detail the extent of the injury, but added, "One of the things we are going to do with Khaseem this spring, anyway, was kind of cut back on what he was going to do in spring football and all that. So we'll have a chance to develop him in areas and however long the healing takes, it takes."
