Ray Rice to sit out Rutgers spring game

PISCATAWAY, N.J. – Rutgers running back Ray Rice will not participate in Saturday's spring game and will miss the next four to six weeks following ankle surgery.

"Ray had a small piece of bone removed from his ankle," Rutgers coach Greg Schiano said after practice Thursday. "It's not a serious deal. It's something he's practiced with all spring and played with last fall. We just wanted to get a head start … rather than wait until next week."

Rice's absence will give Rutgers a chance to showcase speedy backup Kordell Young, who rushed 138 yards and 4.8 yards per carry as a freshman last year.

A Rivals.com first-team All-Big East member, Rice rushed for 1,794 yards and 20 touchdowns as a sophomore in 2006.
