Syracuse vs. Clemson: Injury report lists Palmer, Butler out again

No surprises here, but still makes O-line’s job tougher.

After seeing Monday’s depth chart, it looked like the Syracuse Orange might get wide receiver Devin Butler back vs. the Clemson Tigers this week. Today’s injury report lets us know that’s not the case.

Just two players were listed as “out” against the Tigers: Butler and offensive tackle Omari Palmer. Butler has been out for the past few weeks, and Palmer even longer. While Butler’s absence is unfortunate, Palmer’s ongoing injury doesn’t lend a hand to Syracuse’s already thin and inexperienced offensive line.

Beyond that, it was good news to see cornerback Cordell Hudson off the list, which should be a nice assist for a secondary that’s in needs of all the bodies it can throw out there. The Orange defensive backs have performed well in recent weeks, but obviously the Tigers are a completely different story. Clemson has a top-20 passing offense this season and we’re likely to see some Nickel, among other wrinkles, to stop them this Saturday.
