FAYETTEVILLE — Rutgers quarterback Gary Nova participated in practice on a limited basis Tuesday, according to the Newark (N.J.) Star-Ledger.
But coach Kyle Flood said after practice Nova’s availability for Saturday’s game against Arkansas has not been determined.
“I think it means he has a chance,” Flood said of Nova’s status, according to the Star-Ledger. “I don’t think there’s any certainty at all. These are decisions that I don’t make. The medical staff makes them, So they give me an idea of what they think he can do and I do it. We’ll see how he feels (Tuesday).”
Nova suffered a concussion in the first quarter of Rutgers’ win last week. He was replaced by backup Chas Dodd, who would start if Nova can’t play Saturday.
Nova — who has been listed as probable on Rutgers’ injury report — threw completed 25 of 35 passes for 397 yards with 5 touchdowns in the win at Arkansas last season. He is 42-for-66 for 542 yards with 6 touchdowns and 2 interceptions so far this season.
