The Syracuse Orange Football team will be short a running back when it takes on North Carolina State in Raleigh, NC on Saturday.

George Morris II was listed in a release by SU Athletics as "Out" for Saturday's game. The list cites an upper-body injury as the reason.

It's unclear how long Morris II will be out, but he is not listed as "Out for the season" like Keon Lyn and Ross Krautman.

George has 114 rushing yards this season on 26 carries. He's also split kick return duties with Devante MacFarlane.

Morris II is a redshirt freshman from Lawrenceville, Georgia.
