Injury knocks Rutgers’ leading returning receiver out for spring

When Rutgers takes the field for its second spring practice under Kyle Flood Tuesday, the Scarlet Knights will do so without one of its top offensive weapons.

Flood confirmed Monday that wide receiver Brandon Coleman will miss all 15 spring practice sessions due to injury.  Coleman will undergo what was described by the head coach as “a minor procedure” on his knee.

Flood didn’t seem concerned that the injury will have any long-term impact on the 6-6, 220-pound redshirt junior.

“We thought this was the best time to do that, so he will sit out this spring,” Flood said in quotes distributed by the team. “You will not see him out there on the field.”

Last season, Coleman led the Scarlet Knights in receiving yards (718) and receiving touchdowns (10), while he was second to senior Mark Harrison in receptions (43).  Coleman will enter the 2013 season four touchdowns away from breaking the school’s all-time record in that category.

    He will also be a first round pick in 2014.
