Rutgers really can’t afford to lose Janarion Grant.
The star wide receiver and do-it-all specialist had to be helped off the field and into the locker room after taking a bubble screen for 76 yards. He appeared to go down awkwardly while ducking under Iowa corner Desmond King.

UPDATE: Grant was on crutches on the sideline and did not return to the game. Iowa won, 14-7.

Grant has three rushing touchdowns so far this year, plus a touchdown on a kick return and a punt return. He’s also thrown a pass for a score. The only thing he hasn’t done is catch one.
The 5-foot-10 senior is averaging 16 yards per punt return and 32.5 per kick return in 2016. He’s caught 15 passes for 112 yards and carried 15 times for 143 yards through three games.
