Durell Eskridge Has Surgery On Wrist, Status For 2013 Unknown

One of SU's promising young defensive backs had unexpected wrist surgery Tuesday that could hurt his ability to play in 2013.

Durell Eskridge, one of the promising young defensive backs for the Syracuse football team, had surgery on his wrist Tuesday. Syracuse.com's Michael Cohen broke the news on Wednesday. The SU athletic department confirmed the report Wednesday night.

It is unclear exactly when Eskridge suffered the injury. He was active throughout spring practice and participated in the spring game in April.

Unfortunately, the status of the redshirt sophomore safety for the 2013 season is still up in the air.

Eskridge will be monitored over the summer, and his status for 2013 will be determined prior to camp in August, according to a press release from the Syracuse athletic department.

Last season, Eskridge played in all 13 games as a backup to Shamarko Thomas. He collected 26 tackles and a forced fumble.

Luckily, SU has some depth at safety thanks to sophomore Wayne Morgan's move to the position from cornerback.

Though, it is nice the Orange have some depth at safety it would be really nice if Eskridge is able to recover over the summer and be able to play this year. He was expected to be one of the front runners for a starting role.
