Rutgers RB Huggins suffers right leg injury
By Kieran Darcy
Rutgers freshman running back Savon Huggins suffered an injury to his right leg in the second quarter of Saturday night's 20-17 overtime win over South Florida, and it could be serious.
Huggins was able to walk off the field, but did not return.
"Yeah, I'm worried about Savon," Rutgers coach Greg Schiano said after the game. "I don't know factually now, but we'll have to get tests done. I'm more than concerned."
Huggins is arguably the biggest recruit in Rutgers football history -- he was rated the 28th-best player in the country in his high school class, and the fourth-best running back, by ESPN. Coming into Saturday's game, Huggins had 54 carries for 143 yards and five touchdowns on the season.
