Good News on Delone Carter

Delone Carter was back on the practice field yesterday, and said he is 100% ready to go for the game this Saturday at Cincinnati. Carter, who suffered a bruised hip on a rushing attempt, left the West Virginia game late in the 2nd quarter and did not return. He was ruled out for the remainder of the game at half time and Syracuse fans everywhere feared for the worst.

Considering Delone Carter had to sit out the entire 2007 season with a hip fracture, fans had a reason to worry. Thankfully Carter was back on the field Tuesday at practice running and cutting and feeling fine. Crisis avoided for the Orangemen. DC3 is just 43 yards behind the #8 All-Time leading rusher at Syracuse University, Bill Hurley. Carter needs just 119 yards to pass the #7 rusher Dee Brown, which can come as early as saturday if Carter gets off to as hot a start as he did versus the Mountaineers.

In other injury related news, Cincinnati quarter back Zach Collaros was seen on crutches before Tuesday's practice with a large brace on his left leg. Collaros threw 4 touch down passes before being forced out of the USF game on Saturday, a game the Bearcats lost 38-30. Zach Collaros said his knee felt like it was "sliding around a little bit" yesterday, which is bad news for Cinci fans. Chazz Anderson came in at QB following the injury and would get his first start in two years if Collaros is unable to play.
