TV: OL Civil, FB Burton Talk SMU

PISCATAWAY, N.J. -- Offensive lineman Andre Civil and fullback Michael Burton expect changes in their roles Saturday when Rutgers travels to SMU. Civil is probable after missing three games with an elbow injury and practiced at a different position this week. Burton may see changes to his job following the injury to leading rusher Paul James.

PISCATAWAY, N.J. -- Andre Civil and Michael Burton both have extra intensive to be excited for Saturday and the start of AAC play against SMU.

Civil won a starting role at right guard at the end of training camp, but missed the last three games with an elbow injury. Civil is probable for Saturday but worked at right tackle in practice with Antwan Lowery healthy as a backup option inside.

For Burton, a lower-leg injury to Paul James has the walk-on fullback in position to get some carries. Burton worked at tailback during the spring and will get the opportunity to carry the football against the Mustangs according to coach Kyle Flood.
