LeGrand still Paralyzed
PISCATAWAY, N.J. (AP) - The 72-hour window of hope has come and gone for paralyzed Rutgers football player Eric LeGrand without word on whether he has had any feeling or movement below his neck.
Coach Greg Schiano had no medical update on LeGrand's condition after the team practiced on Wednesday, the fourth day since the junior defensive tackle was paralyzed from the neck down making a tackle on a kickoff return against Army on Saturday afternoon.
Some doctors believe if a person who sustained a spinal cord injury does not have some feeling or movement within 72 hours, there is little chance of recovery.
Schiano is adamant in his belief LeGrand will walk again.
To honor their teammate, Rutgers players have put a sticker on the front of their helmets with the word "believe."
