Rutgers QB Noah Vedral provides positive update to rehab from ankle injury
Noah Vedral touched on his rehab from an ankle injury he sustained in the fall and provided a positive update to his situation Wednesday afternoon.
During the 2020 season, Vedral sustained an ankle injury in the win against Maryland. That injury kept him out of the season finale against his old team, a loss to Nebraska to complete the schedule.
On Monday, head coach Greg Schiano discussed Vedral’s status ahead of spring practices. Schiano said Vedral was not quite back to 100% but did say he was doing much better.
On Wednesday, Vedral provided his own personal update. Vedral said that he is feeling good and is able to practice, so he is not anticipating missing much of anything during spring practices.
“I know coach Schiano gave you guys an update, but I’m doing good,” said Vedral according to 247 Sports. “I’m making progress and I’m able to practice, so I’m feeling good. I’m excited for the spring and my ankle, whatever else I’m dealing with, really shouldn’t hold me out too much.”
Vedral is entering his second season under center for the Scarlet Knights after appearing in seven games during 2020. He led Rutgers with 1,253 yards passing and nine touchdowns while also finishing third on the team with 193 yards rushing.
As the Scarlet Knights enter spring, Vedral is likely to be the starter once again in the fall. Artur Sitkowski has hit the transfer portal while Johnny Langan will likely once again serve as the backup and change of pace quarterback running the ball.
