Syracuse starting DB Lyn out for season

Syracuse cornerback Keon Lyn sustained a lower-body injury and will miss the rest of the season, the school announced on Monday. A three-year starter, Lyn has 89 career tackles, including five for a loss of 20 yards, three interceptions and two forced fumbles in his 37-game career. Through four games this season, Lyn has 16 tackles, including 14 solo.

Lyn was the team's top cornerback, and this will be a big blow to an already struggling defense. Cuse enters Saturday's game at NC State ranked No. 102 in the country in passing defense and No. 70 in scoring defense.
