OneRepublic, who was slated to perform at Rutgersfest this year, has dropped out because of an injury lead singer Ryan Tedder sustained while playing basketball.

The official Rutgersfest site, which was made by a 10 year old in Microsoft FrontPage in 1998, was updated tonight to inform students that OneRepublic will no longer be performing on May 2. They have not yet announced if another band will be substituted.

According to a MySpace blog posted by drummer Eddie Fisher, Tedder tore his Achilles tendon hours before playing a concert at Central Michigan. He was rushed to the hospital and underwent surgery over the weekend. He is currently recovering, but will not be ready in time to play RutgersFest.
