Football Coach Gerry Faust of the University of Akron has a broken left leg, but the former Notre Dame coach will be on the sideline when Akron plays at Eastern Michigan today.

"I tell my kids they gotta play tough, so I better be tough, too," he said.

Faust said his wife persuaded him to have X-rays, which showed a broken fibula suffered when he was run over by a player during practice Monday. Faust does not need a cast, but his leg is tightly wrapped and he must use a cane while the injury heals.
