Army shows support for Eric LeGrand

Army coach Rich Ellerson never appreciated an off week so much.
"It was a good time to have a week off," Ellerson said as his Black Knights returned to practice for Saturday's game against VMI at Michie Stadium.
The Black Knights needed time off since their overtime loss to Rutgers at the New Meadowlands Stadium on Oct. 16, when Eric LeGrand was left paralyzed from the neck down after tackling Army's Malcolm Brown on a kickoff return.
At the start of the week, LeGrand, a junior defensive tackle for the Scarlet Knights, had not shown any sign of improvement. The outpouring of support for the 20-year-old LeGrand has been a positive that Rutgers coach Greg Schiano said cannot be measured. He's received messages of support from fellow Big East coaches and administrators and people nationwide.
