Lemon will play for Syracuse against USC
Syracuse wide receiver Alec Lemon will return from a lower-body injury to play against Southern California on Saturday. The senior was limited throughout preseason camp by the injury and missed SU’s opener against Northwestern last week.
SU head coach Doug Marrone announced on Facebook Friday that Lemon would play after he worked out with quarterback Ryan Nassib at the team’s walk-through in the morning. He set a single-season program record for receptions in 2011 with 68, and he’ll give Nassib another reliable target when the Orange takes on the No. 2 Trojans at 3:30 p.m. at MetLife Stadium on Saturday.
Without Lemon against the Wildcats last week, Nassib enjoyed a record-setting day, spreading the ball around to nine receivers. Marcus Sales led SU in receiving with 11 catches for 117 yards and a touchdown.
