Broyld to miss 'a couple weeks'

Syracuse will be without Ashton Broyld against Notre Dame this week, and potentially for the next few games as the most difficult stretch in the schedule approaches.

When Ashton Broyld went down against Maryland, it did not look good. Based on the clear pain and frustration displayed on his face and by his body language, the fear was that it was a long-term injury.

Syracuse head coach Scott Shafer provided an update during his weekly Monday video session with Matt Park on (full video at the bottom of the page). Broyld is expected to be out for the foreseeable future.

”It’s going to be a couple weeks,” Shafer said. “Luckily they don’t think they’re going to have to do surgery on it. Really disappointing for Ashton. He’s a great kid. He’s really done a nice job growing as a young man this past year and a half.

”Disappointing but it’ll be a great challenge for him to learn from. I know we’ll get him back as soon as they give him the green light. I know he’ll be working hard on the rehab.”

In Broyld’s absence, Estime is likely to get more snaps in the h-back role. Ben Lewis and Ervin Philips could also see more reps in the slot.

Syracuse faces Notre Dame in MetLife Stadium at 8pm on Saturday.
