During the October 16 game vs Army, defensive tackle Eric LeGrand suffered a spinal cord injury. He underwent emergency surgery to stabilize his spine at Hackensack University Medical Center. He is paralyzed from the neck down, but has regained sensation throughout his body, which might lead to a more complete recovery.
This tragedy clearly affected the team's play: While they held on to defeat Army and raise their record to 4-2, when in the aftermath of that game the extent of LeGrand's injury became apparent, it contributed to sending RU into a funk that resulted in a six-game losing streak to end the season.
