SYRACUSE — Syracuse University tight end Josh Parris has sustained a lower body injury which will require surgery.
The surgery is scheduled for today. Parris will be evaluated throughout the rehabilitation process and his status will be determined in the coming weeks.
A junior, Parris played in all 13 games in 2013, including two starts. In Syracuse’s dramatic come-from-behind victory against Boston College, Parris had a career-best seven receptions for 47 yards and two touchdowns, including the game-winning score with six seconds left in the game.
