Rutgers University will retire the No. 52 jersey of paralyzed former player Eric LeGrand.

It will be the first number to be retired in Rutgers 144 year history.

The retirement ceremony will be held Sept. 14 at halftime of the school's game against Eastern Michigan.

LeGrand has been undergoing rehabilitation since he was paralyzed from the neck down making a tackle in a game against Army in 2010.
