Syracuse Football: Cornerback Keon Lyn Out For Season With Lower-Body Injury

Rich Barnes-USA TODAY Sports

Starting senior corner Keon Lyn will miss the remainder of the 2013 season. He has a "lower-body injury" which will require surgery.

Syracuse's secondary - which gave up 468 passing yards against Clemson - got even more bad news on Monday.

Starting senior corner Keon Lyn will miss the remainder of the 2013 season, according to SU Athletics.  Lyn has a "lower-body injury" which will require surgery.  Team physicians Dr. Irving Raphael and Dr. Brad Raphael will perform the procedure.

Lyn is a three-year starter and has played in 38 games.  In that period, he has 89 career tackles (five for loss), three interceptions, two forced fumbles and one sack.  This season, Lyn had 16 tackles in five games.  In 2012, he recorded 46 total tackles and three interceptions.

Lyn's career at Syracuse has likely come to an end.  The NCAA allows players who have played less than 30 percent of the season to receive a medical hardship waiver.  Lyn played in 5-of-12 games (or about 42 percent).

Cornerbacks Brandon Reddish and Julian Whigham will likely get more playing time as a result of Lyn's injury.  But, Reddish missed last week's game due to a lower-body injury. He was a game-time decision against Clemson, but did not play. Whigham has two picks this season, including one against Clemson.
