Another day and another weak side linebacker is down for SU. It is a position where Syracuse is paper thin, so keeping every linebacker on the team healthy is a major priority. True freshman E.J. Carter will step in and start. I thought he looked good in limited action last week, but this will be a huge test for the young man.
Things are so bad it might be time to see if former Ohio State player Zack Dumas has any eligibility left, ala Greg Paulus. Sure, he's got to be about 40 right now, but the man can deliver a hit.
