"They're ready," Shafer said. "They've been running with the team all last week, practicing, and they look good."
Dungey and Philips had both been out with "upper-body" injuries. Dungey suffered his in the second quarter of the Orange's 30-27 win over Central Michigan on Sept. 19, while Philips last played in the season-opener against Rhode Island on Sept. 4.
"We got the offense rolling and there really was no hesitation, so it's good to see," Shafer said. "Erv made a nice cut on his leg and felt good about it, came back smiling to the huddle, 'Feel good, Coach,' and Eric made some real nice throws during practice."
