The Big Ten released the availability report for Rutgers against Temple per the new league rules two hours before kickoff at 5:30 p.m. ET. Note that this is not an injury report and no reasons are given for a player’s status. Head Coach Greg Schiano will likely be asked about certain players following game. Here is the report for Rutgers and some quick thoughts.

Rutgers football availability report vs. Temple

3 Scarlet Knights ruled “OUT”

  • WR Naseim Brantley
  • WR Chris Long
  • LB Darien Djabome

2 Scarlet Knights ruled “QUESTIONABLE”

  • RB Aaron Young
  • DE Wesley Bailey

Quick Take:

Obviously not having two of the top receivers on the roster listed as out is a concern. Naseim Brantley remains out due to the NCAA eligibility issue that Greg Schiano has spoken on with frustration. Chris Long got dinged up last week but did continue to play. Hopefully, he isn’t a long term injury concern……Aaron Young is listed as questionable for this game. However, Sam Brown is not listed which gives strong indication he will be available to play in this game. Hopefully, both Brown and Young are able to play. Either would give a big boost to the running back room…….Wesley Bailey also got dinged up last week and Schiano didn’t think it was serious. Rutgers is deep on the edge so perhaps Bailey will be kept out unless they feel he’s needed in certain situations.

    That seems like good news for Sam Brown but he may be limited in playing time.
