Rutgers football players are showing support for one of their own.

Saturday was the team's first home game since Defensive Tackle Eric LeGrand was paralyzed while playing against Army on October 16th.

Before the game, fans signed a banner honoring LeGrand that was hung in the student section.

Students also sold wristbands with the proceeds going to charity.

LeGrand is currently at the Kessler Institute for Rehabilitation in West Orange.

He was paralyzed from the neck down after making a tackle last month.
