PISCATAWAY — Head coach Kyle Flood said Monday that Rutgers' defensive coaches will likely ask Lew Toler about Eastern Michigan's personnel but little else for Saturday's game.

Toler, a graduate transfer, played Eastern Michigan three times at Western Michigan, a MAC opponent.

Toler earned his first career start Sept. 7 against Norfolk State, but Flood listed him as a co-starter with junior Gareef Glashen against Western Michigan. Toler forced a fumble in the team's Aug. 29 season opener and recovered a fumble on Rutgers' next defensive possession.

"They're very close," Flood said. "They played about the same, and sometimes at the same time they played. We'll make the final decision probably after the Thursday practice, but regardless of who starts the game, I feel like we've got two guys there that can start for us, and both of them are going to play quite a bit."
