McLane Carter won the starting quarterback job at Rutgers over the offseason. This past offseason, by the way, he transferred from Texas Tech as a graduate transfer.

He opened the 2018 season as the starter at Texas Tech. Carter has talent, nobody questioned that. And in Week 2, Rutgers was 1-0 with a trip to Iowa looming. In that game, Carter got hit and suffered a concussion.

He did not play in the second half and the Scarlet Knights lost 30-0. The team went on to lose its next three games by a combined score of 130-23, lose its head coach in Chris Ash and Carter did not return to play for a single snap.

The medical issue remained exactly as that. He has not played since Week 2.

On Monday, interim head coach Nunzio Campanile spoke to the media about Carter going forward:

“I don’t anticipate McLane playing again,” Campanile said. “To the best of my knowledge, he will not play again this season.”
It should be noted that Carter does not have any eligibility left — according to Campanile. Is it solely a concussion issue? Not all concussions are equal, and this one may have been what leads to the end of Carter’s collegiate career.
Carter has completed 53 percent of his passes while throwing for 1,039 yards, 6 TD and 8 INT in his career.
