Krautman out for Wagner game

first_img Facebook Twitter Google+ Published on September 12, 2013 at 10:56 am Contact Stephen: | @Stephen_Bailey1 Kicker Ross Krautman will not play in Syracuse’s home opener against Wagner at 4 p.m. on Saturday, Scott Shafer said at his weekly press conference on Thursday.“Ross has got an injury that they’re trying to get a good diagnosis on, but it’s something that’s been chronic now,” Shafer said. “Something he’s been fighting for the last two years. So I feel really bad for Ross.”Krautman, a senior, missed time during training camp with a strained groin, but it’s unclear if this is a re-aggrevation of that injury or another ailment all together. Through two games Krautman is 1-of-2 on field goals this season, and missed a PAT against Northwestern last week.Sophomore Ryan Norton will fill in as SU’s starting kicker against the Seahawks. He regularly takes kickoffs for the Orange and has a strong leg, but struggled at times with accuracy during training camp.“Norton will be ready to kick,” Shafer said. “He’s had a good week of preparation. Hopefully we can put him in some good situations where it’s extra points more than field goals this week.”AdvertisementThis is placeholder text Commentslast_img read more
