Syracuse vs. USF: Eric Dungey, Ervin Philips "Ready to Go," Says Scott Shafer

Rich Barnes-USA TODAY Sports

Syracuse quarterback Eric Dungey and hybrid Ervin Philips will both play against South Florida on Saturday, SU head coach Scott Shafer told on Monday.

"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."
