The Syracuse Orange football team will be heading to Fort Drum to practice this week. Freshman DB Naesean Howard won't be making the trip.

Freshman defensive back Naesean Howard has been suspended indefinitely for a violation of "training rules," head coach Scott Shafer announced Monday morning.

Howard, a West Genesee High School product, will not travel with the football team to Fort Drum this week and will meet with Shafer regarding reinstatement when the team returns.

Shafer told the media that "I suspended Naes for the trip indefinitely with the goal being that when we get back on campus I’ll bring him in, sit him down, see if he learned his lesson for breaking training rules."

Still upbeat, Howard tweeted out encouragement to his teammates.

I feel like this later tweet is almost certainly unrelated but I'd like to think it's 100%-related:

Good advice for everyone, really.
