Adam Taliaferro and Rutgers DT Eric LeGrand (updated)

Found this article today by Tom Luicci at The Star-Ledger. In it, Luicci writes how Penn State's own Adam Taliaferro hopes to hear from Rutgers defensive lineman Eric LeGrand or his family. Why?
LeGrand, a junior defensive tackle, was left paralyzed from the neck down after suffering an injury to his C-3 and C-4 vertabrae while making a tackle on a kickoff late in Rutgers' 23-20 victory over Army on Saturday at New Meadowlands Stadium. He underwent emergency surgery that night at Hackensack University Medical Center.
Taliaferro, and the Adam Taliaferro Foundation have already pledged any support they can offer to Eric and his family.

Rutgers has set up a page that you can send your best wishes to LeGrand. I suggest you take a moment and do so.

Update: Per Jeff Nelson, "Joe Paterno, Dr. Wayne Sebastianelli, Adam Taliaferro and his family have spoken to Rutgers officials about Adam's spinal injury in 2000"
