Krautman has slight tear in pelvic area

Kicker Ross Krautman has a slight tear in his pelvic area, Syracuse head coach Scott Shafer said during his weekly teleconference on Tuesday.

Krautment underwent an MRI on Friday for a chronic groin injury, his high school coach Drew Gibbs told The Daily Orange, after consulting two doctors including one with the Buffalo Bills.

Krautman is continuing to visit doctors as Syracuse tries to get a firm diagnosis on his injury, Shafer said.

Krautman, a senior, sat out of the Orange’s 54-0 win over Wagner on Saturday. It was the first game he’s missed in his collegiate career. Shafer said “he’s been doing the doctor circuit” so that SU can make an informed decision on an injury that can be tough to judge.

“It’s a difficult injury to diagnose,” Shafer said, “and that’s why we’re trying to get as many opinions.”

Other than Krautman, though, SU is totally healthy, Shafer said. Syracuse shouldn’t be missing anyone else when it squares off against Tulane at 12:30 p.m. in the Carrier Dome on Saturday.

“Knock on wood everyone’s healthy,” Shafer said. “I think we should be full rostered and ready to go.”
