Rutgers football's Kyle Flood mum on injury status of star receiver
PISCATAWAY — Rutgers could see a significant shakeup to its injury report when it is released later in the week, ahead of its Dec. 26 bowl matchup with North Carolina.
When asked about receiver Leonte Carroo's status, head coach Kyle Flood said, "We'll put out a report next week."
Flood has not specifically addressed injury concerns in the last two seasons, a philosophy shift from previous administrations. It's not uncommon nationally as more programs shield injury information.
Rutgers usually submits an injury report at the beginning of each week, but it could change during bowl preparation. Rutgers leaves Monday for the Quick Lane Bowl in Detroit.
Carroo was voted to the All-Big Ten first team by the media and an honorable mention in the coaches' poll. He finished the regular season with 53 receptions for 1,043 yards and 10 touchdowns, among the league's best.
Carroo suffered a head injury last season that cost him the final three games.
Sophomore Carlton Agudosi is his immediate backup at the X position. He played sparingly this season as Carroo cornered the market on production.
Agudosi finished with five catches for 32 yards.
