Syracuse FB Harris out with concussion

Syracuse starting fullback Adam Harris has been ruled out of Saturday's game against Pitt with concussion symptoms and his career is over, the school announced Tuesday night.

Harris missed the second half of last Saturday's loss to Cincinnati after sustaining a concussion. After reviewing his concussion history and increased vulnerability for further concussions, it has been determined that Harris will no longer be allowed to play for Syracuse.

The senior co-captain, who earned CoSIDA Academic All-District honors for the second year in a row and is on the national Academic All-America ballot, has started nine games this season. He has two carries for 10 yards, six receptions for 31 yards and one touchdown and six special-teams tackles.

In his two-year Syracuse career, Harris has 10 carries for 31 yards and 10 receptions for 67 yards and one touchdown. He has also recorded 12 tackles on special teams. Harris made the team as a walk-on linebacker before 2009 preseason camp after transferring from Cornell. He moved to fullback in 2010.
