QB Update

If there was any doubt about whether Art Sitkowski would experience any lingering effects from having his shoulder driven to the turf by a ferocious blindside hit four days ago, Rutgers’ freshman quarterback answered it 15 minutes into Tuesday’s practice.

Sitkowski stepped back, took a hit from a foam-blocking pad, and fired a 10-yard dart to tight end Travis Vokolek.

On any other day, the pass would’ve been one of about a hundred ho-hum deliveries for Sitkowski over the course of a two-hour practice.

On Tuesday, it was a completion that signaled a big sigh of relief from Rutgers Nation.

One day after Rutgers coach Chris Ash listed his starting quarterback as “day-to-day” while “dealing with (a) little bit of pain” from the hit, Sitkowski handled the first-team offensive reps during the one-hour open period of practice for the media Tuesday evening.

Sitkowski showed no apparent ill effects from the shoulder injury that sidelined him for the second half of Saturday’s 52-3 loss at Ohio State.

Tuesday is the first day of Rutgers’ game-plan install, which is the strongest indication yet that Sitkowski will start this Saturday’s road clash with Kansas.
