The more I realize that Doug Marrone closed off practice because the Syracuse Orange football team is overflowing by injuries, the more concerned I get about our game with the Rutgers Scarlet Knights on Saturday.
Looks like the early report that Prince-Tyson Gulley was going to be out with a collarbone injury was not a "mistake" after all.
Marrone didn’t reveal the status of Gulley, who apparently suffered a collarbone injury. When asked about the sophomore, he said, "It doesn’t look good."
No official word on any of the other walking wounded (Chandler Jones, #SHAMARKO Thomas, Olando Fisher, Keon Lyn, Ri'Shard Anderson). Marrone specifically said that "we have two situations which are still up in the air."
Marrone also spoke at length about what it takes to stop on a step on his football field as a running back (learn to protect the QB). In other words...Steve Rene, Jerome Smith, Adonis Ameen-Moore...make sure your blocking is in order this weekend.
Another sleepless night for Doug Marrone. And perhaps, Syracuse fans as well.
