Yet another Rutgers football player in hot water
Problems continue for the Scarlet Knights as yet another Rutgers football player is under investigation following an off-the-field incident.
The team's most accomplished player, star wide-receiver Leonte Carroo, was suspended indefinitely, Coach Kyle Flood announced Sunday during a media teleconference, according to an article on nj.com.
"Leonte Carroo has been suspended from our program as a result of an incident that happened last night outside our stadium that's currently under investigation," Flood told reporters during the teleconference. "Until that investigation concludes I'll have no further comment."
The incident took place outside High Points Solution Stadium, following Saturday's game against Washington State.The Knights lost the game, 37-34.
Flood would not elaborate on what, exactly, transpired following the game or how long the investigation involving the 6'1, 215 lb senior classman will last. It's likely, though, that Carroo will miss the Sept. 19 game against Penn State.
Carroo totaled three touchdowns on three receptions in the team's opening win over Norfolk State earlier this month.The 2015 team captain was also named the 2014 Rutgers offensive MVP.
Rutgers recently dismissed five players from the program after four were arrested on assault charges and another on robbery charges.
