It's been a week since a Syracuse Orange football injury report which means it's been a week since we found out a major player is out and/or is done for the year. So really, you had to assume this was coming.
SU has announced that Lord Beckett Wales is done for the season thanks to The Dreaded Upper Body Injury.
Syracuse tight end Beckett Wales suffered an upper body injury during Syracuse's game against Pittsburgh which will require surgery. As a result of the injury, Wales will miss the remainder of the 2013-14 season. Surgery will be performed by Dr. Irving Raphael.
Through 11 games this season, Wales has 10 catches for 78 yards. He had a season-high three catches for 33 yards against Pittsburgh before the injury. Wales has 52 career receptions, which ranks fourth on Syracuse's lists for most receptions by a tight end and his 523 receiving yards ranks seventh on the record list for tight ends.
Wales seemed to have gotten his groove back against Pitt after seeing Josh Parris supplant him for a while.
But of course, Syracuse Football is suffering incarnate and Wales joins a long list of SU players who are also probably done for the season (unless we, you know, win).
