Lemon, Lyn to miss spring for Syracuse

Syracuse receiver Alec Lemon and cornerback Keon Lyn will miss spring football practice because of shoulder surgeries, the school announced Thursday.

Lemon had surgery on his right shoulder in Annapolis, Md., while Lyn had surgery on his right shoulder in Fort Lauderdale, Fla. Their status for the 2012 season will be evaluated throughout the rehabilitation process and announced before to the start of preseason camp.

Lemon led the team in receiving in 2011, catching an school single-season record 68 passes for 834 yards and six touchdowns as a junior. Lyn recorded 23 tackles, including 22 solos, had three pass breakups and one forced fumble in his sophomore season.
