Syracuse senior LB Parris Bennett accepted an invitation to play in the East-West Shrine Game.

Bennett has gone over 100 tackles the last two seasons for the Orange, and finished at the top of the ACC in solo tackles in 2017. He also picked up two sacks and a forced fumble. Current draft projections have him as a late-round selection or undrafted free agent.

Syracuse senior T Jamar McGloster accepted an invitation to the East-West Shrine Game.

McGloster holds a little intrigue due to his length and athleticism. He came to Syracuse raw, a basketball-playing athlete. McGloster became a two-year starter at right tackle. He posted 12 knockdown blocks this year.

Syracuse junior QB Eric Dungey underwent surgery on his right foot.

Dungey sat out the last three games of the campaign while nursing the foot injury. With Syracuse finishing at just 4-8, the 6-foot-3, 202-pounder will now embark on a winter of recovery. When healthy this season, Dungey threw for 2,495 yards (59.5% completions) with a 14/9 TD/INT ratio while rushing for 595 yards and nine touchdowns over the course of nine games played. One other Dungey note -- HC Dino Babers indicated that he will be returning for his senior season and will not be jumping to the draft.

Syracuse redshirt junior DB Cordell Hudson will transfer as a graduate.

Hudson (5'11/181) had recorded back-to-back seasons of 40-plus tackles entering the 2017 season, but registered just one tackle for the current campaign. He'll be eligible to play immediately with his new team come the start of the 2018 season.

Syracuse senior WR Steve Ishmael caught 11 passes for 187 yards and a touchdown in Saturday's 42-14 loss to Boston College.

In so doing, Ishmael broke Marvin Harrison's school record for receiving yards, nearly half of which came this season. On Saturday, he also broke Amba Etta-Tawo's school record of 94 receptions in a single season, set last year. Ishmael finished with a 105-1347-7 line this season. The NFL is next for the 6-foot-2, 202-pounder. In October, Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline wrote that Ishmael will be a "nice fifth receiver at the next level." Earlier this month, ESPN's Mel Kiper called Ishmael a Day 3 prospect. "Ishmael has a big frame and is a good route runner," Kiper wrote. "He can separate late on routes. He has also played some in the slot, so he can be versatile, and he's not afraid to go over the middle and make contested catches. Ishmael is just a smart, polished receiver." Steve's brother, Falcons safety Kemal Ishmael, was picked in the seventh round in 2013.

Syracuse redshirt freshman QB Rex Culpepper started Saturday's game against Boston College.

Interestingly, the Orange elected to start Culpepper over senior Zack Mahoney in the season finale. Perhaps they're looking to keep Culpepper invested with Dungey returning next season and highly-touted Tommy DeVito considered the future at the position. Culepper, the son of former NFL player Brad and his wife Monica -- who have both played on the TV show Survivor -- was the No. 43 pro-style quarterback in the class of 2016.
Nov 25 - 1:54 PM

Syracuse sophomore RB Dontae Strickland (undisclosed) was ruled out for Saturday's game against Boston College.

Strickland also missed last week's game against Louisville with the injury. Moe Neal will again see an increase in touches with Strickland out.
Nov 25 - 12:03 PM

Syracuse junior QB Eric Dungey (foot) was ruled out for Saturday's game against Boston College.

Dungey will miss a third straight game with his foot injury. With Dungey out, Rex Culpepper will be under center for the Orange in their season finale.
Nov 25 - 12:01 PM

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.
Nov 23 - 7:46 PM

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.
Nov 23 - 7:37 PM

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.
Nov 18 - 7:55 PM

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.
Nov 18 - 3:02 PM

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.
Nov 18 - 3:00 PM

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.
