 SYRACUSE, N.Y. (AP) - Syracuse's first game in the Atlantic Coast Conference is at hand, and Orange coach Scott Shafer is thankful he has a couple of weeks to prepare for No. 3 Clemson.
The Orange are in a bye week after resounding victories over Wagner (54-0) and Tulane (52-17) after an 0-2 start in Shafer's rookie season. He said the team would not practice this week with gear on and was concentrating on heavy lifting and hard running, as well as drill work that is position-specific.
Nursing injuries were defensive end Robert Welsh, cornerback Brandon Reddish, and offensive tackle Kyle Knapp. Shafer said Reddish, who has a lower leg injury, likely would be questionable for Clemson on Oct. 5, while Welsh and Knapp should be in the lineup.
