first_img Facebook Twitter Google+ Comments Tight end Josh Parris will return to the field from his knee injury on Saturday when Syracuse (2-0) hosts Maryland (2-1) at 12:30, head coach Scott Shafer said at his weekly press conference Thursday morning.“Josh Parris had a good week of practice,” Shafer said, “so we’re looking forward to getting him back on the field … He’s ready to go.”The junior had been day-to-day earlier in the week and his status for the game hinged on his performance in practice, Shafer said earlier in the week.Parris was slotted to be the Orange’s starting tight end but suffered a knee cartilage injury and underwent surgery on Aug. 27. Kendall Moore and Jamal Custis have seen most of the snaps at tight end for SU while Parris has been sidelined.Parris has 13 career receptions for 90 yards and a pair of touchdowns, one of which was the game-winning score against Boston College last year to clinch bowl eligibility.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textShafer added to the injury update that H-back Sean Avant is still out with an upper-body injury.center_img Published on September 18, 2014 at 11:02 am Contact Phil: [email protected] | @PhilDAbblast_img
