Syracuse junior TE Kyle Kleinberg (undisclosed) is probable for Saturday's game against Miami.

Kleinberg moved from linebacker to tight end during 2016 fall camp. He's played in every game on special teams since arriving on campus. Kleinberg isn't much of a factor on offense, even when perfectly healthy.
Oct 20 - 3:38 PM

Syracuse redshirt senior WR Sean Avant (undisclosed) is probable for Saturday's game versus Miami.

Avant will return to his role of a reserve receiver and special teams contributor.
Oct 20 - 1:59 PM

Syracuse redshirt junior S Antwan Cordy (undisclosed) has been ruled out for Saturday's game against Miami.

Cordy (5'8/175) has managed to play in just one game during the current campaign due to his injury concern. This is not his first experience being sidelined by health. He received a medical redshirt in February after sustaining a season-ending forearm injury a year ago. There is no current timetable for Cordy's return to action.

Syracuse senior WR Steve Ishmael will be a "nice fifth receiver at the next level," writes Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline.

Like our own Thor Nystrom, Pauline pounded the table for Ishmael over the summer. The 6-foot-2, 203-pound senior receiver has come through with a career year, posting a sizzling 62-802-4 receiving line. "Ishmael needs to improve his route-running but comes with nice size, reliable hands and the ability to win out for contested passes," Pauline wrote.
Oct 18 - 3:24 PM

Syracuse sophomore RB Dontae Strickland rushed for 78 yards on 19 carries while catching two passes for 20 yards and a touchdown in Friday's 27-24 win over Clemson.

Strickland's touchdown came on a nifty little 23-yard screen in which he dodged one defender, kept his balance -- just -- and then carried on to the end zone. After being held under 50 yards rushing in each of Syracuse's first five games, the 5-foot-11, 196-pounder has cranked it up with 158 yards combined over the last two contests.
Oct 13 - 11:59 PM

Syracuse senior WR Steve Ishmael caught six passes for 73 yards and a touchdown in Friday's 27-24 win over Clemson.

Ishmael brought in a 30-yard scoring pass down the right sideline midway through the third quarter. While he has now been held under 100 yards receiving in back-to-back contests after surpassing that mark in each of Syracuse's first five games, he has also now made touchdown catches in each of his last four games. On the whole, he's put together a brilliant 62-802-4 campign.
Oct 13 - 11:13 PM

Syracuse senior WR Ervin Philips caught four passes for 94 yards and a touchdown in Friday's 27-24 win over Clemson.

Philips broke wide open -- there was not a defender within 10 yards of him -- for a 66-yard score down the middle of the field with 5:13 remaining in the first quarter. The 5-foot-11, 176-pound senior has now posted at least 90 yards receiving in three of his last four games. For the campaign as a whole, Philips owns a 56-569-3 receiving line.
Oct 13 - 11:00 PM

Syracuse junior QB Eric Dungey completed 20-of-32 passes for 278 yards and three touchdowns while rushing for 61 yards on 21 attempts in Friday's 27-24 upset of Clemson.

Dungey and the Orange did what no other team has done this season -- shred Brent Venables' defense. Syracuse racked up 440 yards on the evening, with Dungey connecting on touchdown passes of 23 and 66 yards in the first quarter before capping off his evening with a 30-yard scoring toss to Steve Ishmael in the third quarter. He also led a clutch kill-the-clock drive to finish the game which included several third-down conversions. Dungey, himself, had the final critical conversion on an eight-yard run. This was the junior's first game with three touchdown passes since the season-opener. Syracuse will try for a second consecutive upset when they hit the road for a date with Miami a week from Saturday.
Oct 13 - 10:47 PM

Syracuse junior WR Jamal Custis (shoulder) is playing in Friday's game against Clemson.

Custis (6'5/207) has not played since Week 2 due to a shoulder injury. He entered Friday's game in the second quarter. Count him as another weapon for the Orange attack. Syracuse currently leads Clemson 14-7 with 10 minutes remaining before halftime.
Oct 13 - 8:03 PM

Syracuse junior TE Ravian Pierce had nine catches for 99 yards in a 27-24 triumph over Pitt on Saturday.

The JUCO product entered the day with only 10 catches for 39 yards and two touchdowns. If he can remain a preferred target for Eric Dungey in the high-flying old Baylor system, Pierce will continue to put up numbers. With so many mouths to feed on the Orange's offense, however, there's a chance he'll revert to being a tertiary option going forward.
Oct 7 - 5:00 PM

Syracuse junior QB Eric Dungey went 33-for-49 for 365 yards and two touchdowns while rushing for 48 yards and another score in Saturday's 27-24 win versus Pitt.

Dungey's rushing score, a 10-yarder in the third quarter that put the Orange ahead 17-13, was his 19th career rushing touchdown. That tied Bill Hurley and Donovan McNabb for the all-time Syracuse record for most rushing touchdowns by a quarterback. Dungey has rushed for at least one touchdown in every game this season. He's thrown for more than 325 yards in three of Syracuse's six games.
Oct 7 - 4:54 PM

Syracuse junior WR Jamal Custis (shoulder) is listed as probable for Saturday's game against Pittsburgh.

Custis (6'5/207) had three catches for 40 yards in the season-opener against Central Connecticut but he hasn't had a catch -- or played -- since that game. His big-body gives the potent Orange passing game another option, but it should still be the Steve Ishmael and Ervin Phillips show for the Orange against the Panthers.
Oct 5 - 8:52 PM

Syracuse senior WR Ervin Philips' 17 catches against NC State on Saturday set both a school and conference record.

Philips turned those 17 catches into 188 yards receiving. He is now second in the country in receptions with 44 total, trailing only teammate Steve Ishmael, who leads all the land with 51 catches. The dynamic duo will help play host to Pitt next weekend.
Oct 1 - 1:28 PM

Syracuse junior QB Eric Dungey went 30-for-47 for 385 yards, a touchdown and an interception while rushing for 44 yards and two other scores in Saturday's 33-25 setback against NC State.

Another solid game for Dungey, who is asked to carry more than his fair share of weight for Syracuse because the Orange have a non-existent running game and a poor defense. Dungey has at least one rushing touchdown in all five games, and he's thrown for at least one touchdown in four of the five.
Sep 30 - 4:14 PM

Syracuse senior WR Ervin Philips caught 17 balls for 188 yards in Saturday's 33-25 loss to NC State.

Philips was held to "only" 16 catches in the school's first three games, but he's hauled in 28 balls for 281 yards and a score over the past two weeks. He's a threat to reach 100 receptions this fall after logging a 90-822-6 receiving line in 2016.
