Just a little while ago, Syracuse athletics issued a quick note on a couple Orange football players. Neither piece of news is particularly good, and one is kind of sad, really.
First, freshman safety Rodney Williams is out for the remainder of the season with a lower body injury. He's had two tackles and a fumble recovery this season and his loss is not a great sign for SU's secondary depth. We have to hope everyone else can stay on the field as more and more defensive backs get dinged up each week now.
The other note is the sadder one. Senior wideout Keenan Hale, sidelined by injuries his entire Syracuse career, has decided to call it quits on the football field. A two-star receiver coming out of high school, he was an early commitment to the Orange, though he never played in a game. He also received All-Big East Academic Team honors in 2012. While he never had a chance to suit up for SU, he'll be on to bigger and better things with a degree and his health. We wish him the best.
So yeah, not the most earth-shattering announcements, but worthwhile ones just the same. Speedy recovery to Williams while he undergoes surgery. And all the best of luck to Hale moving forward.
