SU football notes: Quarterback Terrel Hunt to miss 4-6 weeks

Additionally, Scott Shafer is making significant changes to his staff.

Syracuse will face the No. 1 team in the country Saturday, but it will have to do so without one of its best offensive weapons.

Quarterback Terrel Hunt, who left during the fourth quarter of Friday's loss to Louisville, has a fractured fibula in his left leg and will miss 4-6 weeks according to a press release from Syracuse Athletics.

Hunt leads the Orange with six rushing touchdowns this season and has also thrown for 983 yards.

Head coach Scott Shafer has not announced who will start against top-ranked Florida State on Saturday. Austin Wilson has been the Orange's primary backup this season.

Lester Promoted

Following another sluggish performance against the Cardinals, the Orange offense is getting a new play-caller on the side lines.

Shafer also announced today that Tim Lester will replace George McDonald as offensive coordinator effective immediately. McDonald will continue to serve as a wide receivers coach.

Lester was previously an offensive coordinator at St. Joseph's College and Elmhurst College.
