It’s the worst part of the sport are these injures. He’s given us a lot, and we’re going to sincerely miss him.”Lyn appeared to suffer the injury in the Orange’s 49-14 loss to No. 3 Clemson on Saturday. The senior will leave Syracuse with 89 career tackles and three interceptions. He had 16 tackles through five games this season.Lyn’s injury leaves the Orange without two of its top three cornerbacks. Brandon Reddish missed the Clemson game with a lower-body injury suffered against Tulane on Sept. 21.Reddish and Ri’Shard Anderson will now likely serve as the starting cornerbacks moving forward. Julian Whigham, who played as the Orange’s nickel corner against the Tigers, would likely step into the starting lineup, should Reddish also be unavailable against North Carolina State on Saturday. Wayne Morgan could also continue to see an expanded role at cornerback.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text“Minor setback for a major comeback. My college career at cuse is over but I enjoyed it.
