Syracuse-Cincinnati kickoff notes

CINCINNATI --It looks like Butch Jones will take this Zach Collaros gametime decision thing right up until gametime.

There still is no official word on which quarterback will start for Cincinnati as we rapidly approach kickoff. Based on body language and warmup assignments, though, it sure seems like Chazz Anderson is going to start, or at least play a lot.

Collaros didn't come out with the other quarterbacks to begin warmups but trotted on to the field about 15 minutes later, wearing a brace on his left knee. He still looked to be moving gingerly on the wounded leg and didn't go through agility drills. Anderson ran the first-team offense during the final part of warmups, while Collaros didn't do much other than throw.

Freshman running back/returner Prince-Tyson Gulley won't play for Syracuse because of an illness. Dorian Graham will replace him on kickoff returns. Also, keep an eye on running back Delone Carter, who missed the second half of last week's West Virginia game with a hip injury. Carter said this week he was 100 percent, but let's see how he responds the first time somebody smacks him.
