Ryan Norton suspended after arrest
Coach Scott Shafer announced the one-game suspension in a statement. Norton was arrested last week and charged with resisting arrest and underage drinking, according to the Syracuse Post-Standard.
Dixon, the starting punter, will handle kickoffs. Both will handle field goal attempts. Neither has attempted a field goal in college.
Syracuse finds itself in this bind after veteran Ross Krautman, the starting kicker going into the season, was lost for the year with a hip injury after Week 2.
On the season, Norton has made four of five field goal attempts and 15 of 16 extra points.
