Former Rutgers football player Eric LeGrand will be at the Tampa Bay Buccaneers vs. New York Giants game today. LeGrand returns to MetLife Stadium, where his life was forever changed nearly two years ago.

In October 2010, LeGrand fractured two vertebrae and had a spinal cord injury against the Army Black Knights in a game.

Since LeGrand was injured, he has received many awards for his courage in recovering from this injury. His football career ended on the field the day that he was injured.

LeGrand has been asked to participate in the coin toss by the Giants. In May, LeGrand signed a contract with the Bucs and retired in July.

He is an honorary member of the Bucs. Former Scarlet Knights head coach Greg Schiano is the head coach of the Buccaneers.

This will be the first time that Schiano has returned to MetLife Stadium since the incident. In addition, it will be the second time, according to reports, that LeGrand returns to the Stadium since that October day two years ago.

At this time, it is not clear if the Giants or the Buccaneers will have LeGrand participate in any other activities involved with the game. Or if he will be in a suite watching the game and potentially come onto the field at the conclusion of the contest.
