Syracuse Football: Carl Cutler's Spring Done With Torn ACL

via media.syracuse.com

As Dan mentioned in his fantastic recap of practice yesterday, Orange TE Carl Cutler is once again done playing football for a while, this time with a torn ACL. It's devastating news on its own, let alone the fact that Cutler missed all of last season after getting injured on the first day of practice last year.

Senior fullback Carl Cutler will miss the remainder of Syracuse's Spring football practice due to a tear in his anterior cruciate ligament. Cutler reported left knee pain and swelling after practice on March 22 and an MRI performed March 23 revealed an ACL tear and additional injuries to the knee that was surgically reconstructed last spring after he injured the knee in Spring practice. Cutler will undergo another reconstructive surgery in the near future. His status for the 2011 season will be re-evaluated over the summer.

And just like that, there's cause for concern at the tight end spot. First, Beckett Wales leaves the program for an indeterminate amount of time and now Cutler is done, likely for a long time. It's not time to panic as the Orange still have Nick Provo and a little bit of depth at the spot, but it's disconcerting.

Good luck to Carl in the recovery process.
