SYRACUSE, N.Y. (AP) Syracuse quarterback Terrel Hunt will undergo surgery on his right Achilles tendon and miss the rest of the season, the school announced Saturday.
Hunt, a senior who missed the last seven games of 2014 with a broken calf bone in his left leg, was injured Friday night in the Orange’s 47-0 victory over Rhode Island in the opener.
Hunt, a co-captain, played one series before leaving the game midway through the first quarter. He rolled to his left and stepped awkwardly before diving forward. He got up on his right foot but then dropped to the turf and walked to the locker room on crutches.
Hunt has played in 19 career games for the Orange and ranks 10th in team history with 2,621 passing yards. He has accounted for 24 career touchdowns (11 passing, 13 rushing) and shares the Syracuse single-game record for the most rushing yards by a quarterback with 156 last season against Maryland.
