The Syracuse Orange are taking a wait and see approach with quarterback Eric Dungey. Coach Dino Barber informed reporters that test results will be made available on Thursday and the team will make a decision based on the findings.
The team issues its weekly injury reports Thursday night in preparation for the games that weekend.
Syracuse will need Dungey to play if he is able. After Clemson pitched a 52-0 shutout against them last week, they face a surprisingly pesky North Carolina State team.
NC State has taken several ranked opponents into the fourth quarter with no degree of certainty as to the outcome; they lost to Florida State 24-20 last week.
A dual threat quarterback, Dungey accounts for a bulk of the Orange offense.
Syracuse S Kielan Whitner said QB Eric Dungey is doing well and has been going to class this week. No specifics on injury/status.

If Dungey is not cleared to return to action, that means the team will turn to backups Zack Mahoney and Austin Wilson. There has not yet been any indication which will start over the other. Signs appear promising for Dungey though, as he has been attending class this week and practiced on Tuesday.
