Syracuse Football: Keon Lyn Returns, How Bout Marcus Sales?

Cornerback Keon Lyn missed the Syracuse Orange football team's final game of the season against the Pittsburgh Panthers. In a bit of good news, for once, his punishment has been deemed over by Coach Marrone and he is back with the team.

Lyn did travel with the team to Pittburgh but was sent home beforehand because of "conduct detrimental to the team."As is par for the course, Marrone didn't elaborate on the reasons.

Today, Marrone announced the issue over.

"Keon is back on the team," head coach Doug Marrone said this afternoon. "The one-game suspension will serve as his punishment."

The sophomore will be a key cog in the defensive secondary next year as it tries to repair it's image following a disastrous 2011 season.

Meanwhile, wither Marcus Sales? The suspended wide receiver's legal troubles are over and Marrone left the door open for his possible return next year. It sounds like the possibility of Sales' return in 2012 still exists.

Sales’ attorney said the player is hoping to meet with Marrone soon, perhaps as early as Friday. Michael Vavonese said he and his client received official word today that an SU judicial board had reinstated Sales as a student in good standing. That means Sales can appeal to Marrone to be allowed to return to the Orange.

The question will be whether or not this season counts as a redshirt for the senior.
