2013 Texas Bowl: Syracuse WR Jarrod West Back From 'Significant Injury'

Rich Barnes-USA TODAY Sports

West missed the last two games after getting hit in the chest & head against FSU.

The Syracuse Orange are going to be without a couple key players when they take on the Minnesota Golden Gophers in the 2013 Texas Bowl. So it's nice to hear they're going to get at least one quality player back in return.

Wide receiver Jarrod West, who was 2nd on the team with 359 yards on 21 receptions, will return after missing multiple games with what has been called a "significant injury."

West was hit hard in the chest and his head was jarred late in the first half while attempting a catch down the sideline in SU's 59-3 loss to Florida State. He returned to the field briefly after the hit but was never directly involved in a play. He did not return after halftime and Syracuse ruled him out for the final two games of the season with an upper-body injury.

The injury disrupted a growing connection between West and quarterback Terrel Hunt. Syracuse had been unable to connect on deep throws for much of the year, but West caught long passes in each of the final two games he was healthy.

SU was able to patchwork together a decent passing attack with Alvin Cornelius, Josh Parris and Brisly Estime but West is certainly the most talented pure receiver on the roster, so any chance to get him back on the field is a good thing.
