SU's Crume and Robinson Out for Season

Syracuse football has dealt with three straight losses, the suspension of Phillip Thomas for a calendar year and now the injury bug is back with some bite. The Athletic Department Announced that defensive lineman Eric Crume and Micah Robinson have been ruled out for the rest of the season.

Syracuse has been very inconsistent on the defensive side of the ball, and now the unit up front will have to move on with a pair of players who served as reserves in the rotation.

On Monday, the Athletic Department announced that Eric Crume and Micah Robinson will have surgery later in the day. Crume's procedure will be to combat a lower-body injury, while Robinson's will be an upper-body procedure. The pair of lineman have combined for eight tackles, including one for a loss, on the season.

Expect the rotation to adjust accordingly, though it may remain limited over the last two games.
