Rutgers RB Huggins expects to return against UConn

An undisclosed leg injury has kept Rutgers running back Savon Huggins out for the past two games. Fortunately for Rutgers, and fellow running back Jawan Jamison, the former four-star back should be returning for this Saturday’s game against UConn.

“I’m feeling a lot better,” said Huggins said via the Newark Star-Ledger. “That bye week (last week) really helped me recover and get better, let me do a lot of rehab. I’ll be back.”

Jamison has been the team’s workhorse in Huggins’ absence, rushing for nearly 500 yards on around 25 carries a game.

Huggins missed most of last season with a knee injury and apparently suffered a similar, yet less severe, injury two weeks ago. He has 70 yards on the ground this season and a touchdown.

    Good to have Huggy back take some pressure off of Jamison.
