They call you a backup, but when it’s your turn, you have to have a starter’s mentality,Rice said after that game, according to RayRice.org. “I’m happy for him,” Schiano said. “When he left here I said, ‘He’s going to be a very good back in the NFL because he works hard and he takes care of his body and does all the things that allow you to be successful in that league.’ “I think he really wanted that. I think he really wanted to go into that league and show he belongs.” INJURY UPDATE Schiano added that long snapper Jeremy Branch would have an MRI Sunday after suffering an injury to his right knee on an extra point before halftime in Saturday’s 49-16 rout of South Florida. “Jeremy, he’s going to have an MRI today this afternoon,” Schiano said “I don’t think it’s going to be good results, but you never know. I’ll have a better answer tomorrow [Monday] on that.” Without Branch, Andrew DePaola, the starting holder, became the long snapper and punter Teddy Dellaganna became the holder.
