Syracuse has been getting good news on the injury front lately. Earlier this month, it was announced that not one, but two defensive starters should be good to go for Week 1 of the 2013 season. Now, the Orange can count on one of their offensive weapons to be back as well.
Running backs coach DeAndre Smith recently told The Post-Standard that Prince-Tyson Gulley, who was the MVP of the team’s Pinstripe Bowl victory last December, has been given the all-clear to play by medical staff.
“He’s good to go,” Smith said.
Gulley was one of three players ruled out of spring practices in January with undisclosed injuries. Gulley was the team’s second-leading rusher last season with 833 yards — roughly a quarter of which came in the aforementioned bowl win over West Virginia — but led the team with nine rushing touchdowns.
He is currently listed second on the running back depth chart, but will undoubtedly be considered a key contributor to the Orange offense this season.
