Navy starting quarterback Keenan Reynolds is expected to return Saturday when the team squares off against the Rutgers Scarlet Knights. Reynolds missed the past week due to a knee injury, but a school spokesperson announced Sunday that he will be ready to go for Saturday.
Prior to last week’s game, Reynolds had played in 23 straight games and in 2013 scored a record 31 rushing touchdowns, the record for a Division I quarterback. Reynolds owns a career record of 16-6, and without him in the lineup, the midshipmen have a large vacancy at the quarterback position.
However, his backup Tago Smith, made an impressive debut on Saturday guiding Navy to a 35-21 victory over Texas State.
Still, Rutgers will be a big step up in competition for Navy, and head coach Ken Niumatalolo will rely heavily upon Reynolds to compete.
