SYRACUSE, N.Y.– Syracuse Redshirt Senior Jason Emerich underwent surgery for an injured shoulder on Oct. 11 ending his career. Emerich suffered the injury in the first half of a Sept. 9 Orange loss to the Louisville Cardinals.

Emerich joined the starting lineup Week 3 of last season against Central Michigan and subsequently stayed there for the remainder of his career. This season, the Center participated in 172 snaps for the Orange.

The Offensive Lineman played 28 games total in his career including 14 starts. Emerich was part of the 2016 Rimington Award Watch List, which profiles the nation’s best Center’s.

The Orange move forward without the Redshirt Senior. Syracuse’s offense plays against a Clemson defense ranked in the top 15 in the country Saturday at 3:30 pm.
