Shafer: Wilson won’t practice Tuesday due to ‘upper-body injury’

first_imgSophomore quarterback Austin Wilson won’t practice Tuesday due to an upper-body injury and he is day-to-day, Syracuse head coach Scott Shafer said during his weekly teleconference Tuesday.Wilson sustained the injury during the fourth quarter of Syracuse’s 38-20 loss to Florida State on Saturday and didn’t return to the field. Freshman quarterback AJ Long, who threw for 167 yards and two touchdowns in the loss, will take the “dominant” amount of the first-team reps at quarterback during practice this week, Shafer said.Shafer said after Saturday’s game that Wilson had a “pretty good headache,” but called it an “upper-body injury” when asked if it was a concussion and said the same on Tuesday.The head coach added that the Orange’s coaching staff isn’t worried about overworking Long, who sat out the end of preseason camp with a sore shoulder, during practice this week.SU (2-4, 0-2 Atlantic Coast) plays Wake Forest (2-4, 0-2 ACC) in Winston-Salem, North Carolina on Saturday at noon.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text Comments Published on October 14, 2014 at 12:35 pm Contact Phil: [email protected] | @PhilDAbb Facebook Twitter Google+last_img
