LeGrand won the Jimmy V Award at the 2012 ESPYs.

Welcome to SportsNation! On Friday, former Rutgers fotoball player Eric LeGrand, who was paralyzed in Oct. 2010 in an on-the-field injury, stops by to chat about his new book "Believe: My Faith and the Tackle That Changed My Life" that hit stores last month. (Read an excerpt.)

While doctors told LeGrand that he would never come off a ventilator nor walk again, he has come off the breathing aid. He is on his way to graduating from Rutgers, who set up the Eric LeGrand Believe Fund. "Believe" is a story of finding purpose in pain and facing setbacks with strength.

LeGrand has set up a Facebook page and a Twitter page -- @BigE52_RU -- to keep fans informed of his rehab progress.

Send your questions now and join LeGrand Friday at 4:30 p.m. ET!
