UConn’s Lloyd goes from redshirt to starter

Connecticut linebacker Greg Lloyd Jr., who was expected to
redshirt this season while recovering from a knee injury, is slated
to start Saturday against Michigan.

Connecticut on Monday released its depth chart for the season
opener, with Lloyd as a starter and redshirt freshman Michael Box
as the team’s second-string quarterback.

Box replaces junior Cody Endres, who is serving an indefinite
suspension for an unspecified violation of team rules.

Lloyd, a senior, was moved to defensive end during the
offseason. But earlier this summer UConn coach Randy Edsall said
the team had decided to move him back to linebacker and sit him out
this season as he continued to heal from two torn ligaments
suffered against Syracuse last November.
