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.
