Greg Schiano updates injury status for Rutgers QBs Gavin Wimsatt, Noah Vedral
Greg Schiano has had some struggles at quarterback this season. Noah Vedral was supposed to be his starting quarterback this season, but has not seen the field yet.
Vedral has not played yet this season because of an undisclosed injury. The team has had to rely on a combination of Gavin Wimsatt and Evan Simon so far.
Simon has done well in relief of Wimsatt, who has missed time since the Temple game in Week 3 with an undisclosed injury.
Simon has 566 yards passing and 3 touchdowns in Wimsatt’s absence. Wimsatt has shown the ability to make plays with both his arms and legs when healthy, with 117 yards passing and 106 yards rushing.
Schiano stated that the Scarlet Knights are going to have to roll with the punches and focus on getting better with whatever quarterback is ready to go for the matchup with Ohio State per Robbie Weinstein of 247Sports:
“Yeah, we are going to see as the week goes on,” said Schiano. “They are both progressing. So what that means by end of the week, I don’t know what that means in practice rep, I don’t know. I’ll know more probably tomorrow. But we’ll continue on as we’re doing, right. We’ll just keep trying to improve with whoever is available.”
Ohio State is 8-0 vs. Rutgers all-time. The Buckeyes and Scarlet Knights meet Saturday at 3:30 p.m. ET on BTN.
