Syracuse Vs. Northwestern: Alec Lemon, David Stevens Questionable For Opener

The Syracuse Orange football program could be without senior wide receiver Alec Lemon and redshirt senior David Stevens for Saturday's home opener against the Northwestern Wildcats, coach Doug Marrone told the media Thursday. Marrone said both player will be listed as questionable heading into the non-conference showdown at the Carrier Dome (12 p.m. ET on ESPN2).

Lemon, SU's leading wide receiver last season, has been dealing with a nagging leg injury that has kept him in and out of preseason practice, while Stevens is dealing with a lower-body injury. If both are unable to go, quarterback Ryan Nassib will be down two big targets.

Also, as expected left tackle Justin Pugh will not play against the purple and while. Pugh is trying to heal from a shoulder injury that happened before preseason camp.
