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
