Rutgers junior defensive tackle Eric LeGrand (Avenel, N.J.) has been admitted to Kessler Institute for Rehabilitation, one of the nation’s leaders in spinal cord rehabilitation, in West Orange, N.J. The LeGrand family requests that the media respect their privacy at this time as he transitions to this next phase of care and treatment.
“Eric is in good spirits and is anxious to take the next step in his rehabilitation process,” said Karen LeGrand. “Thank you to everyone for the tremendous outpouring of love, support and prayers for Eric.”
Any updates on Eric’s condition – when appropriate – will be issued by the family through the Rutgers Athletic Communications Office. All updates will be available online at www.ScarletKnights.com/Believe.
