UConn’s Greg Lloyd Goes From Redshirt To Starter

STORRS, Conn. (AP) — Connecticut linebacker Greg Lloyd Jr., who was expected to redshirt this season while recovering from a knee injury, is slated to start Saturday against Michigan.

Connecticut on Monday released its depth chart for the season opener, with Lloyd as a starter and redshirt freshman Michael Box as the team’s second-string quarterback.

Box replaces junior Cody Endres, who is serving an indefinite suspension for an unspecified violation of team rules.

Lloyd, a senior, was moved to defensive end during the offseason. But earlier this summer UConn coach Randy Edsall said the team had decided to move him back to linebacker and sit him out this season as he continued to heal from two torn ligaments suffered against Syracuse last November.
