Syracuse redshirt junior WR Adly Enoicy sat out Sunday's practice due to an undisclosed injury.

Enoicy (6'5/230) has been a limited participant at best in preseason camp. It is unclear when he might be ready to return to action. He appeared in three games a year ago and is not expected to have an extensive role with the Orange during the coming campaign.

Syracuse redshirt junior DE Josh Allen (heart) said that he was not aware that he had been medically-disqualified until the team announced it in July.

Blood clots were discovered around Allen's heart after he underwent an EKG earlier this offseason. "Between me, the doctor and the coaches, it never even came up — the DQ. It was just, ‘We’re going to see how your heart is doing and go from there,'" Allen explained. "It was never like, ‘You’re done.’" Syracuse would like to see the JUCO transfer stay on as an undergraduate assistant (he still has two years eligibility remaining). He could also take a medical redshirt this season and try to play again in 2018, though he would need clearance medically if he is to take the field again.

Syracuse redshirt senior CB Jordan Martin is being ignored by NFL scouts, writes Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline.

This despite the 6-foot-3, 205-pound Martin possessing "outstanding size and developing ball skills," according to the analyst. Martin transferred to the Orange from Toledo in the spring as a graduate. In three years for the Rockets, Martin totaled 74 tackles, 4.5 TFL, 11 pass deflections, two forced fumbles and an interception. He missed 2015 with a torn ACL. "He shows a knack for knocking away sure completions and defends the run well," Pauline wrote. "Martin needs to pulls the pieces of his game together and consistently play at a high level which will push him into the late rounds."

Syracuse redshirt junior G Aaron Roberts suffered a left knee injury during a conditioning drill and will miss the season.

The redshirt junior started all 12 games at left guard in 2016. He led the team in snaps played and knockdown blocks. With camp opening tomorrow, Sam Clausman and Andrejas Duerig will now compete for the right to fill in for Roberts.

Syracuse redshirt freshman TE Jaquwan Nelson has left the team.

Nelson made the wrong kinds of headlines when he was arrested in relation to a December burglary this past February. He was then charged with second-degree burglary and fourth-degree grand larceny. Syracuse indefinitely suspended him following that arrest. It is not known at this juncture whether Nelson has a transfer lined up.

Syracuse has reinstated indefinitely suspended redshirt freshman S Devon Clarke.

Clarke was hit with an indefinite suspension following his February arrest -- along with teammate Jaqwan Nelson -- for his role in an alleged burglary back in December. He was charged with fifth-degree criminal possession of stolen property and second-degree burglary. His case has since been waived to a grand jury, per the Syracuse Post-Standard.

Syracuse sophomore Moe Neal has switched back to RB after practicing at WR.

Neal's time as a slot receiver lasted only a few months. The Orange have to replace 94 receptions made by Amba Etta-Tawo last season, and you know Dino Babers won't stop passing the football.

Syracuse junior QB Eric Dungey said that redshirt junior WR Jamal Custis has "the body of a Greek god."

"He's got perfect size, perfect frame. He can run great. He's got great hands. With him it's going to be getting him game reps and confidence," Dungey said. The junior gunslinger is not joking about Custis' size -- the wideout is listed at a hulking 6-foot-4, 224 pounds. Health might be his biggest obstacle to a productive season, as Custis was forced to take a redshirt last season after being sidelined by a high ankle sprain. He has appeared in just three games for his Syracuse career. If he can stay on the field, he has the chops to serve as a prime red zone target.

Bowling Green senior LB Austin Valdez transferred to Syracuse as a graduate.

Valdez turned in a phenomenally productive 2015 season -- 144 tackles (11.0 for loss) and two interceptions in 14 games -- but injuries set him back last season, when he finished with a more modest 58 tackles in 10 contests. At Syracuse, he will be reunited with former Bowling Green HC Dino Babers. He should be able to carve out a significant playing role with the Orange in August camp so long as he can maintain his health.

Former Bowling Green QB Matt Johnson has joined Dino Babers' staff at Syracuse.

Johnson played under Babers at Bowling Green during his final season and their styles meshed well together. Babers loves to throw often and throw vertically, and downfield shots might be Johnson's strength.

JUCO sophomore RB Jo-EL Shaw received a scholarship offer from Syracuse.

A 2016 signee, Shaw was forced to attend Lackawanna Community College after failing achieve an SAT score high enough to meet the NCAA's requirements. Syracuse reached back out to him recently to gauge his interest in reuniting. "It meant a lot because of the fact that a lot of people thought I wasn't going to be able to get back and be offered," Shaw said. The 6-foot-1, 235-pounder is a punishing power back. He averaged 7.2 yards per carry last year at Lackawanna, wracking up 601 yards and seven touchdowns on 84 carries. UConn, UMass, Toledo and Georgia Southern are also in touch with Shaw, and LSU and Virginia Tech have both scouted him. "I want to go where I'm going to be prepared to go the NFL," Shaw said, "because I have no doubt in my mind that if I stay healthy, I'll go to the NFL."

Syracuse and Western Michigan agreed to a home-and-home series.

In 2018, the schools will play at WMU. The Broncos will return the favor by traveling to Syracuse for a game in 2019.

ESPN's David M. Hale believes that Syracuse senior WR Ervin Philips could post a 100-catch, 1000-yard season in 2017.

Philips was close to those marks last season, finishing the year with a 90-822-6 receiving line. With Amba Etta-Tawo no longer on the team, there will be plenty of opportunities for the 5-foot-11, 176-pounder. We also like Steve Ishmael (48-559-1 in 2016) to post improved numbers now that he has a year under his belt in HC Dino Babers' aggressive spread attack.

Bleacher Report's David Kenyon thinks that Syracuse freshman WR Nykeim Johnson could compete for immediate playing time in the slot.

As Kenyon points out, the slot in Dino Babers' dynamic offensive scheme must be fast, but he doesn't need to be able to run a complex route tree. The tiny, raw Johnson may not be polished, but he's the type of burner that could eventually put up big numbers in Babers' aggressive spread offense.
May 31 - 6:15 PM

Syracuse received a verbal commitment from three-star 2018 RB Jawhar Jordan.

"I've got a great connection with the coaches and they've showed me a lot of love, which not only me but my family appreciated as well," Jordan told Scout.com. The 5-foot-10, 160-pounder ranks as the outlet's No. 6 running back prospect in the West. His main appeal comes in his speed -- Jordan has been clocked at 4.48 seconds in the 40-yard dash. He opted to commit to Syracuse over Iowa State, Arizona, Kansas and Rutgers.
