It appears Rutgers quarterback McLane Carter sustained a concussion in Week 2.
The Scarlet Knights took on Iowa in their first B1G game of the season, but things did not go well. Rutgers quickly fell behind and was shutout on the road by a final score of 30-0.
Offensively, Rutgers just never got going. Carter completed 5 of 15 passes for 22 yards with an interception before being replaced. He had a QBR of 2.8.
After the game, head coach Chris Ash declined to give an update on Carter’s status. But on Sunday afternoon, James Kratch with NJ.com is reporting that the injury sustained by Carter was a concussion.
Kratch cited an Instagram post of one of Carter’s associates for the info:
Rutgers graduate senior quarterback McLane Carter suffered an apparent concussion during Saturday’s 30-0 loss at No. 20 Iowa, according to a Instagram post by an acquaintance reviewed by NJ Advance Media on Sunday night. The post shows a photo of Carter and says he has a concussion.
Hopefully, Carter can shake the injury quickly and get back on the field. Neither Carter nor Artur Sitkowski were effective against Iowa’s defense, but the Scarlet Knights would love to have both available. Fortunately, Rutgers gets a Week 3 bye before facing Boston College.
