Syracuse RB Gulley out 7-10 days, Sales suspended

Posted by Chip Patterson

At Big East Media Day, Syracuse head coach Doug Marrone had no official comment on the status of Prince-Tyson Gulley or Marcus Sales. The former suffered multiple stab wounds after an on-campus brawl broke out at a party, the latter faces several felony drug charges after a traffic stop last Friday night.

When meeting with the media an hour before the Orange kicked off their first practice of the 2011 season, Marrone announced that Sales has been suspended indefinitely and Gulley will miss 7-10 days of practice.

Gulley reported to camp on time and will not face any disciplinary actions, and a suspect has been arraigned in Syracuse City Court. Gulley will take a more active role in the Syracuse offense this season, after primarily serving as a return man in 2010. With Antwon Bailey looking to fill in for the departed Delone Carter, Gulley will be counted on as the second-string back to share the load.

Sales' potential absence could be a big blow to the Orange passing game. Quarterback Ryan Nassib threw 19 touchdowns and only 8 interceptions last season, and was counting on having his two senior receivers (Sales and Van Chew) in the lineup.

Marrone also announced that backup quarterback Jonny Miller has been suspended, after being arrested on Wednesday in connection to an assault and robbery incident in Boulder, Colo. along with Colorado offensive lineman Bryce Givens.

Syracuse's Gulley out of hospital

Posted by Tom Fornelli

The last week hasn't been very kind to the Syracuse football program. Wide receiver Marcus Sales was arrested on a number of different drug charges, and in scarier news, running back Prince-Tyson Gulley suffered multiple stab wounds during a fight on campus. Thankfully for Gulley, he's now been released from the hospital.

Gulley left the hospital over the weekend and is at home recovering with his father. It's expected that he'll return to Syracuse some time this week before camp begins on Friday, though nobody knows when he'll be able to return to the field, or what kind of punishment -- if any -- he faces for the incident.

Syracuse head coach Doug Marrone said he's talked to Gulley since the incident, but he hasn't gone into any detail into what kind of consequences there will be for Gulley or Sales, saying it'll be handled internally.

Gulley suffered stab wounds to the back and arms after a fight broke out at a party following a group of non-students showing up at the party on campus.

Gulley only had 13 carries for 74 yards and a touchdown last season, but did return 30 kicks for 633 yards and is expected to play a much larger role in the Syracuse offense this season.

Report: Syracuse RB stabbed in campus brawl

Posted by Chip Patterson

Syracuse police are reporting that one man has been stabbed multiple times after a large fight broke out at a party on Syracuse campus. As of the release of the report the victim had not been named, but the injuries were not considered life threatening.

Multiple sources, including the student newspaper The Daily Orange, are reporting that the victim is Syracuse running back Prince-Tyson Gulley.

Gulley played in 10 games for Syracuse in 2010 as a freshman, where he was mostly a threat in the kick return game. Gulley averaged 23.7 yards per return, good enough for fourth in the Big East.

With Delone Carter graduated, Gulley is expected to move into the second-string running back spot behind Antwon Bailey.

The Syracuse athletic department has not been reached for comment.
