Rutgers star WR Leonte Carroo out vs Badgers

Published Oct. 31, 2015 12:20 p.m. ET

Leonte Carroo will miss the game Saturday against the Wisconsin Badgers per an official release from the school today.

The Scarlet Knights star WR has been battling an ankle injury for a couple weeks now and was unavailable to media all week. He had been listed as questionable all week and Kyle Flood had this to say earlier in the week:

“It really just comes down to what the doctors tell me,” Flood said this week. “I have to lean on the medical professionals because they are the ones who have been through it and they’ve had situations like this in their past. I take their advice and I lean on that."

Carroo leads the Big Ten in receiving touchdowns with 9 despite missing lots of action with injury and discipline issues.
