Starting ‘Cuse LB to be a healthy go for camp

Earlier this month, Syracuse received good news on the injury front regarding one of its defensive starters.  A couple weeks later, there’s additional good news on that side of the ball as well.

Clark Lea, the Orange’s linebackers coach, confirmed to the Syracuse Post-Standard that Dyshawn Davis is healthy and will be ready for the start of summer camp in early August.  Davis underwent shoulder surgery this past January and, as a result, did not participate in spring practice.

Despite that, Davis exited spring atop the depth chart, and left the first-year position coach anxious to see what the linebacker is capable of in Scott Shafer’s defense.

“I’ve got high expectations for Dyshawn when you see what he’s done in the past,” Lea said. “I got to see a little bit of his athleticism just in some of the movement work we did and was impressed by that.”

In 2012, Davis was second in tackles for loss (14) and third in tackles (69).  He added two fumble recoveries, one sack and one interception as a sophomore.

    How are Dyshawn’s grades? I know he is now healthy and eligible but how is he doing in school? Is he on track to earn a degree? He’s a good player based on his stats but if he doesn’t make it in the NFL, will he have a degree to fall back on? I hope so because if he gets injured again, he may not even be able to play let alone earn a professional contract. Just looking out for the young man.

    God you’re a detestable dope. I don’t know why your subtle racism is allowed on here. Did a black man steal your boyfriend or something?

    I mean its just constant about grades and arrests and out of wedlock kidswith the African American college athlete with you.

    Knock it off, your bs doesn’t belong on here. You’re ignorant thinking is what’s wrong with society.

    Uggghhh……Paul, did you take your medication today? Earning a degree is a primary reason to attend college, is it not? IMO, having children out of wedlock is wrong regardless of race, religion, creed, etc. It is not fair to the child because most of these kids grow up with a single parent. That is a fact Paul. Do some research before you start making erroneous comments. I conclude you did not wish to accept my previous proposal which I believed to be rather generous. I am pleased you continue to read my posts though……I’m truly flattered. As always, have a good day, sir.

    Isn’t it funny though how your postings are always about or against black players?

    You are a racist, plain and simple. People like you make me feel ashamed to be white.

    You can stick your idea. Run away because someone is calling you on your bs, typical internet keyboard warrior.

    If you continue to post ignorant diatribes, prepare to be called on it.
