Syracuse loses Aaron Weaver for the year

The hits keep on coming for Big East teams early this season. Now, it's Syracuse's turn.

The Orange have lost starting receiver Aaron Weaver for the season to a torn ACL in his right knee. The injury was suffered in practice this week.

Weaver caught six passes for 88 yards in the first two games of the season, including the team's first touchdown of the year: a 23-yard catch at Akron.

Weaver transferred to Syracuse in January after playing his first three seasons at Hofstra, which discontinued its football program. The 6-foot-2 senior provided good size and veteran presence to a mostly inexperienced Syracuse receiving corps.
