Syracuse junior QB Eric Dungey went 19-for-35 for 279 yards, two touchdowns and an interception while rushing for 105 yards and another touchdown in Saturday's 41-17 win over Central Michigan.

This is the Eric Dungey we know and love. Last week, he was taken out of his game due to a confluence of terrible offensive line play and a bevy of drops in an upset loss to Middle Tennessee. This time around, Syracuse's explosive offense returned to form with 579 yards. The 2-1 Orange have a rough matchup on deck with a trip to LSU scheduled for next Saturday.
Sep 16 - 7:50 PM

Syracuse senior WR Steve Ishmael caught eight passes for 139 yards in Saturday's 41-17 win over Central Michigan.

Last year, Ishmael's expected breakout campaign never came to fruition as grad transfer Amba Etta-Tawo stole the No. 1 role. Now that Amba is in the NFL, Ishmael is making good on his promise. He's up to a 34-389-0 line through three games. The lack of touchdowns is frustrating, but they'll come.
Sep 16 - 7:44 PM

Syracuse redshirt junior WR Adly Enoicy (undisclosed) has been ruled out for Saturday's game against Central Michigan.

Enoicy has yet to play this season due to an undisclosed injury concern, one which limited him stretching back to August camp. There remains no current timetable for his return.
Sep 16 - 3:10 PM

Syracuse redshirt junior WR Jamal Custis (shoulder) has been ruled out for Saturday's game against Central Michigan.

Custis dinged up his left shoulder in the second half of this past Saturday's game against Middle Tennessee. The Orange played coy with his status during the practice week, but he has ultimately been nixed for this showdown with the Chippewas. Sean Riley and Devin Butler are two candidates to see increased playing time with Custis out of the picture.

When asked whether officials were allowing too many late hits on Syracuse junior QB Eric Dungey, HC Dino Babers said, "It's their job to protect them. It's in their hands. I can't control that."

"The referees are taught to protect those young men out there, and that's their job, and I'm not going to get caught up in whether they do or they don't," Babers said. Dungey was briefly forced out of Saturday's loss to Middle Tennessee after taking a brutal hit, but managed to return to the game. All signs have him ready to roll against Central Michigan this weekend.
Sep 14 - 4:53 PM

Syracuse HC Dino Babers has yet to offer any sort of a definitive statement on the status of redshirt junior WR Jamal Custis (shoulder).

"I don't know what the whole diagnosis on Jamal is yet, whether he can come back and help us now or later, I just have to wait and see," Babers said on Wednesday. Custis injured his left shoulder in the third quarter against Middle Tennessee on Saturday and later reemerged from the locker room with his arm in a sling. At this juncture, he should probably considered doubtful for this weekend's game against Central Michigan.
Sep 14 - 4:38 PM

Syracuse redshirt junior WR Jamal Custis (shoulder) doesn't yet have a timetable to return to the field.

Custis exited Saturday's loss to Middle Tennessee State in the third quarter clutching his left shoulder. We should get some clarification about his status as we move closer to Saturday's game against Central Michigan.
Sep 13 - 4:34 PM

Syracuse senior WR Steve Ishmael caught 14 passes for 116 yards in Saturday's 30-23 loss to Middle Tennessee.

Ishmael briefly left the game with a possible shoulder injury, but he was able to return. This showing was much like his 12-134-0 performance last week. Syracuse is going to give Ishmael all the targets he can handle. The touchdowns will come.
Sep 9 - 7:28 PM

Syracuse junior QB Eric Dungey went 26-for-42 for 180 yards and an interception while rushing for 53 yards and a touchdown in Saturday's 30-23 loss to Middle Tennessee.

Dungey probably isn't very happy with his teammates right now. His receivers were dropping passes like the ball was decorated with spikes, and his leaky offensive line set up a few crushing shots. One of those hits briefly forced Dungey out of the game. With a history of concussions, Dungey can't afford to have too many more days like this if he's going to last the season.
Sep 9 - 7:27 PM

Syracuse junior QB Eric Dungey left in the second quarter of his game against Middle Tennessee State with an apparent head injury.

The injury occurred on a targeting penalty that saw the MTSU defender ejected. No word has been given on the severity of the injury, but it is worth nothing that Dungey does have a history with concussions. Zack Mahoney was his replacement after the injury.
Sep 9 - 6:29 PM

Syracuse senior WR Steve Ishmael went down with an apparent shoulder injury in Saturdsay's contest with MTSU.

The injury occurred on a brutal pass interference penalty, and trainers appeared to be working on his right shoulder. We'll pass along more information when it is available.
Sep 9 - 6:16 PM

Syracuse redshirt junior WR Jamal Custis (shoulder) left for the locker room in the third quarter of Saturday's game with Middle Tennessee State.

After a drop, he left the field holding his left shoulder. No word yet on his status.
Sep 9 - 6:12 PM

Syracuse redshirt junior WR Adly Enoicy (undisclosed) will not play in Saturday's game against Middle Tennessee State.

Enoicy suffered the undisclosed injury during preseason camp and did not play in the Orange's season-opening win over Central Connecticut State. Count it as a depth blow for HC Dino Babers' squad.
Sep 9 - 3:04 PM

Syracuse senior WR Ervin Philips caught six passes for 71 yards and a touchdown in Friday's 50-7 win over Central Connecticut State.

Philips (5'11/176) scored on a 14-yard toss from QB Eric Dungey near the end of the first quarter. He is coming off a 90-822-6 showing in 2016. ESPN's David Hale believes that the senior wideout could potentially be gearing up for a 100-catch, 1,000-yard receiving season this year.
Sep 1 - 11:05 PM

Syracuse senior WR Steve Ishmael caught 12 passes for 134 yards in Friday's 50-7 win over Central Connecticut State.

Ishmael was expected to shine in HC Dino Babers' wide-open attack when Babers came over from Bowling Green prior to the 2016 season, but he disappointed with a 48-551-1 receiving line when all was said and done. If Friday's performance was any indication, the ACC should be afraid. Ishmael (6'2/202) did not score in the game, but led the team in both receptions and receiving yardage while averaging a steady 11.1 yards on his 12 catches. We would like to see him come through against stiffer competition, but this was exactly the kind of game he needed as proof of concept after his uninspiring season a year ago. Middle Tennessee shows next on Syracuse's schedule.
