Syracuse RB George Morris has surgery, out indefinitely


The Syracuse Orange’s backfield took a hit on Friday when it was announced that running back George Morris will be out for an undisclosed amount of time. He is expected to play a big role for the team this year, but it looks like he might not see the field for a good portion of the season.

ESPN’s Brett McMurphy reported that Morris had suffered an ankle injury and would need surgery. He will be out an indefinite amount of time.

In 2015, the senior running back started three games for the Orange. He has played a depth chart role in three seasons, but has still racked up 761 yards and a touchdown throughout his career.

It will be interesting to see how the team moves forward without him. The Orange open the season on Sept. 2 against the Colgate Raiders.
