Syracuse freshman safety Rodney Williams, who had been praised throughout training camp by the coaching staff, has a lower body injury that will require surgery according to Syracuse Athletics. The surgery will be performed by Dr. Todd Battaglia.
Williams played in only two games, recording two tackles and recovering a fumble. That leaves him open for a medical redshirt.
In addition, receiver Keenan Hale, a redshirt junior, has decided to call it a football career do to nagging injuries that required three surgeries during his time with the Orange. Hale was never able to see the field for Syracuse due to those injuries.
