After missing Saturday's game versus Texas State, Navy Midshipman quarterback Keenan Reynolds will return Saturday against Rutgers.

Keenan Reynolds Set To Return vs. Rutgers

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.
