Jones cleared

Syracuse University football star defensive end Chandler Jones started full contact practice this week after missing five consecutive games for the Orange.
Jones, who was seen with a knee brace on his left leg in Syracuse’s last home game against Rutgers, is expected to start when Syracuse hosts West Virginia at 8 p.m. next Friday.

He was officially listed with a “lower body injury” after Syracuse’s opening-day win against Wake Forest. Ultimately, Jones will have missed six weeks of football.

Former Players


SS Steve Gregory continues to start after Bob Sanders was forced to injured reserve with a knee injury. Gregory can cover the range, although he's not the physical presence that Sanders was; few are. Gregory, though, was a no-show on Sunday's stat sheet with zero tackles on a day when the defense allowed 162 yards rushing.

Doug Hogue (hamstring) was listed as limited on the injury report.

Senior quarterback David Legree is averaging 229 passing yards, second-best in the MEAC. Thomas is just one weapon at the disposal of Legree, leading the league with 279.8 yards of total offense per game. Quarterback Chris Walley, is atop the MEAC with 232.5 passing yards per game - 3.5 more than Legree.

"I know he’s a great quarterback," Legree said. "I haven’t been able to see him much because we’ve been focusing on defense, but numbers don’t lie. He’s doing an excellent job. I wish him the best, but this isn’t a me-against-him type of thing. I’m just looking forward to being against their defense. I don’t play defense and he doesn’t play defense, so it’s basically about Hampton versus Norfolk. Hopefully we can go out there and get the W."

About Legree, Adrian said: "David is big playmaker. There’s no question about it. You’ve got to try and slow him down, because you’re not going to stop him. He can beat you with his feet or his arm. You’ve got to try to contain him in space, and you’ve got to make sure you’re able to cover the receivers, and then the running backs are like little darts who can fly around.


Memorable 'hits' from Freeney

If Addai can't go against the Bengals, the Colts will call on Donald Brown to carry their running game. Rookies Delone Carter and Darren Evans also might see time Sunday. It's been Carter who has subbed for Addai in the Colts' trying season. Evans was activated from the practice squad.

Addai leads the team with 249 yards rushing. Carter has 41 carries for 125 yards. Coaches aren't rushing to make a decision on whether to start Carter this week

“We’ll make that determination a little bit later in the week, kind of see where Joe is before there’s a real determination on it," Caldwell told The Indianapolis Star. "We’ll see. So many (things) happen throughout the course of a week.”


Quinn Ojinnaka Short learning curve for Colts'

GH: As Orangemen, we know Jimmy Brown is the greatest offensive player to come out of Syracuse. Is Freeney the greatest defensive player to come out of the ‘Cuse?

DL: If you look at his numbers, his sacks, forced fumbles, fumble recoveries; you’d have to say he’s the greatest defensive playmaker to come out of Syracuse. He’s a playmaking fool.
