Syracuse running low on tight ends

Posted by ESPN.com's Brian Bennett

Syracuse is getting awfully thin at the tight end spot.

The school announced Tuesday night that Nick Provo is done for the year after suffering a left knee injury. Another tight end, Cody Catalina, will not be available for Saturday's game against West Virginia with an unspecified injury.

Additionally, Donnie Webb reports in the Syracuse Post-Standard that converted quarterback Andrew Robinson had a cast on his left hand during Tuesday's practice. That would leave Mike Owen as the only healthy tight end on the two deep.

It's safe to say the Orange probably won't be playing a lot of two-tight end packages against the Mountaineers.

Injuries are something to watch closely with this team. Doug Marrone has a very thin roster because of several player defections after the coaching change, and a significant amount of injuries would make things very difficult for Syracuse in the second half of the season.
