NEWARK, N.J. -- With Eric LeGrand showing no signs of improvement since suffering a spinal cord injury more than a week ago, Rutgers coach Greg Schiano met with his team and tried to calm their fears and anxiety over the weekend.

Schiano says the meeting on Sunday night was a chance to talk through some things and to allow everyone the opportunity to sort things out.

LeGrand has been paralyzed from the neck down since making a tackle on a kickoff return against Army on Oct. 16 at New Meadowlands Stadium.

Schiano said after Rutgers' 41-21 loss to Pittsburgh on Saturday that there has been no change in the condition of the 20-year-old defensive tackle. Schiano had no medical update on Monday during a conference call of Big East Conference coaches.
