Syracuse vs. USC: Chandler Jones Will Miss Another Game

Chandler Jones' "lower body injury" wreaked havoc on the Syracuse Orange defense against Rhode Island. SU was forced to shift a lot of people into new positions and new responsibilities and it showed. Torrey Ball, Brandon Sharpe, Mikhail Marinovich, Deon Goggins and Micah Robinson did their best to hold down the fort in Chan's absence.

They'll have to do it again this week when the Orange travel to play USC. Doug Marrone announced on the Big East Coaches Teleconference that Jones will miss another game.

Chandler Jones will not be available for Syracuse this week as they travel to USC. Marrone said no Big East team has won at USC in 1957 when Pittsburgh did it. Said he loves the leadership from Marinovich and that he will likely be the game captain Saturday. Said the defensive line played adequately without Chandler Jones but will need to continue to get better to have a chance against USC this weekend.

Marrone said he was "hopeful" that Jones would be back for the Toledo game. Safety Olando Fisher will also miss another game.

Dave Rahme also notes that freshman safety Durell Eskridge missed another game and is likely to redshirt at this point after getting tangled in NCAA red tape.
