Syracuse sophomore RB Dontae Strickland (undisclosed) is questionable for Saturday's game against Boston College.

Strickland was listed as questionable last week as well, but ended up not travelling to Louisville. If the junior tailback is unable to go for the second straight week, Moe Neal will again be the top option for the Syracuse running game.

Syracuse junior QB Eric Dungey (foot) is questionable ahead of Saturday's contest with Boston College.

Dungey has missed the last two games with the foot injury, but has warmed up in both ahead of the game. If he can't get make the start, it'll be Zack Mahoney back under center for the Orange. Mahoney hasn't played atrociously, but the Syracuse offense has looked much more competent when Dungey is calling the signals.

Syracuse sophomore RB Moe Neal rushed for 98 yards on 19 carries in Saturday's 56-10 loss to Louisville.

Neal (5'11/170) drew the starting assignment with Dontae Strickland staying home to nurse an undisclosed injury. He performed well with the opportunity, even as the score became more and more lopsided. We'll have to wait and see whether he receives another starting chance against Boston College in the regular-season finale next weekend.

Syracuse junior QB Zack Mahoney will draw the start for Saturday's game against Louisville.

Mahoney is starting in place of Eric Dungey, who is dealing with a foot injury. This will be his second consecutive starting outing. Against Wake Forest last weekend, he threw for 384 yards, three touchdowns and two interceptions.

Syracuse junior QB Eric Dungey (foot) warmed up in advance of Saturday's game against Louisville, but is not expected to start.

Dungey has now warmed up for back-to-back contests, but he did not start against Wake Forest last weekend and he will not be doing so against Louisville, either. After warming up on Saturday, he was later spotted in sweats and a boot. Zack Mahoney will take the start in his place versus the Cardinals.

Syracuse junior QB Eric Dungey (foot) is warming up in advance of Saturday's game against Louisville.

Dungey sat against Wake Forest last weekend while on the mend from his foot injury. He warmed up prior to that contest but did not ultimately take the field -- Zack Mahoney started in his place. We'll pass along word if Dungey ends up sitting once again, but so far, he's tracking toward starting action.
Nov 18 - 2:22 PM

Syracuse sophomore RB Dontae Strickland (undisclosed) did not travel with the team for Saturday's game against Louisville.

Strickland initially sustained the undisclosed injury in a loss to Wake Forest last weekend. With the 5-foot-11, 207-pounder staying back, Moe Neal figures to see the bulk of carries against the Cardinals on Saturday.

Syracuse sophomore RB Dontae Strickland (undisclosed) is questionable for Saturday's game against Louisville.

Strickland (5'11/207) left last week's loss to Wake Forest, but he was able to return to the game. If the sophomore isn't able to go against the Cardinals, it could mean a big carry total -- for Syracuse, anyway -- and touches in the passing game for backup tailback Moe Neal.
Nov 16 - 8:16 PM

Syracuse junior QB Eric Dungey (foot) is listed as questionable on the injury report for Saturday’s game against Louisville.

Dungey missed last Saturday's game against Wake Forest with the injury, which he suffered a week before against Florida State. Backup signal-caller Zack Mahoney threw for 380 yards and three scores against Wake, but he struggled mightily in the second half as the game started to get away from Syracuse. Mahoney will get the call again if Dungey can't go. Stay tuned.

Syracuse HC Dino Babers says junior QB Eric Dungey (foot) made "drastic improvement" in his rehabilitation last week.

Dungey suffered an undisclosed lower-right leg injury at Florida State two weeks ago and missed last weekend's loss to Wake Forest. Babers is hopeful he'll be able to play Saturday against Louisville. We should get clarification on that front over the next 48 hours.
Nov 15 - 12:44 PM

Syracuse HC Dino Babers says he expects Dungey (foot) to play Saturday against Louisville.

Dungey was forced to miss last week's loss to Wake Forest with the foot injury; an injury he suffered in the loss to FLorida State. Backup signal-caller Zack Mahoney was able to throw for 380 yards and three scores, but struggled with accuracy against the Demon Deacons. Mahoney will get another start if Dungey can't go, but the early reports suggest that won't be necessary.

Syracuse senior WR Steve Ishmael was named one of 12 semifinalists for the Fred Beletnikoff award on Monday.

You'd be hard-pressed to find a wideout who has put up better numbers than Ishmael (92-1131-6), so it's no surprise that he's being recognized as one of the best wideouts in the country. The full list of nominees is: Darren Andrews, UCLA; A.J. Brown, Ole Miss; Deontay Burnett, USC; Keke Coutee, Texas Tech; Michael Gallup, Colorado State; Steve Ishmael, Syracuse; Anthony Miller, Memphis; Trey Quinn, SMU; David Sills, West Virginia; and James Washington, Oklahoma State.
Nov 13 - 7:51 PM

Syracuse junior QB Zack Mahoney completed 33 of his 60 pass attempts for 384 yards, three touchdowns and two interceptions in Saturday's 64-43 loss against Wake Forest.

Mahoney stepped up and had a nice performance, albeit in a loss, in place of the injured Eric Dungey (foot). If he is called upon for next Saturday's trip to Louisville the quarterback looked more than capable.
Nov 11 - 7:03 PM

Syracuse sophomore RB Dontae Strickland (undisclosed) returned to Saturday's game against Wake Forest.

Strickland left for the locker room briefly in the first half, but was able to return to the game without issue. He should be able to play the rest of the contest barring further injury concern.
Nov 11 - 4:15 PM

Syracuse sophomore RB Dontae Strickland left Saturday's game against Wake Forest due to an undisclosed injury.

Strickland headed to the locker room after sustaining the injury -- he was moving slowly and it could possibly be a lower-body issue -- before later returning to the sideline. Consider him questionable to return.
