Rutgers cornerback Blessuan Austin needs knee surgery again

PISCATAWAY, N.J. -- Rutgers senior cornerback Blessuan Austin is going to need knee surgery again.

Coach Chris Ash announced Monday that Austin will have surgery on the same knee that caused him to miss all but four games last season. He probably will miss the rest of the season.

Austin was hurt making an interception in the season opener against Texas State. He missed the past two games.

Ash said, "They're going to go and look at his knee. Not sure exactly what they're going to have to do, but they'll go in and potentially have to redo his ACL repair."

Rutgers (1-2) returns home Saturday to play Buffalo (3-0).
