Backed into a corner?

Yale could have both of its starting corners when it goes against the most dynamic offense in the Ivy League or could be without either of them for Saturday's game at Harvard.

Paul Rice has been on the field for one play - a punt - in the last two weeks because of a troublesome knee. At Tuesday's media luncheon, Yale coach Jack Siedlecki said Rice is better than he was a week ago when Rice was ruled out for the Princeton game by mid-week but Rice may not know if he can go or not until he attempts to go full speed during pre-game drills on Saturday.

The case of Casey Gerald is not injury related. Gerald will fly to Houston on Thursday and will undergo interviews in an attempt to become the eighth Yale football player to be named a Rhodes Scholar. The hope is to have Gerald on a flight from Houston to Boston Friday night but the exact details are still being worked out. Gerald wants to play in the Harvard game enough that he reached out to the committee to express his intention on being with Yale as he plays the final game of his football career. In Wednesday's edition of the Register, there will be more on Gerald's remarkable journey from a rough childhood where both of his parents left the family because of their drug addictions and became not only a three-year starter at Yale, but has a chance to become one of the most decorated student-athletes to ever suit up at Yale.
