Rutgers’ Eric LeGrand Takes the Field Again

Paralyzed in October 2010 when he was covering a kickoff return, Rutgers defensive tackle Eric LeGrand never gave up,  and by last summer was tweeting pictures of himself standing up in rehab. When he led the Scarlet Knights onto the field in a motorized wheelchair on Oct. 29, he inspired sports fans and recovering patients everywhere.
