Rutgers’ quarterback depth has taken a hit.
Scarlet Knights redshirt senior Zach Allen has torn his ACL and is out indefinitely.
Rutgers now just has one healthy scholarship quarterback on its roster.
Redshirt senior Zach Allen suffered a torn ACL during Saturday’s practice and is sidelined for an undetermined amount of time, coach Chris Ash announced. He did not practice Tuesday or Thursday and figures to miss at least the start of the season.
That leaves Rutgers with just two quarterbacks available for the spring game: Returning starter Giovanni Rescigno and walk-on Troy Anthony.
“We’re not sure what direction Zach will go,” Ash said. “He’s still visiting with trainers and doctors about what the next step is but he will not participate in the spring game.”
Allen was listed as the No. 2 quarterback on Rutgers’ depth chart this spring.
The Scarlet Knights open their 2017 season on Sept. 1 against Washington.
