Loss of Phillip Thomas An Opportunity For Backups, Marrone Says

The Syracuse University football defense will be without free safety Phillip Thomas for the rest of the season. Orange head coach Doug Marrone said today that the SU defense will cope with the loss of the junior, who was suspended for one year Friday for violating athletic department policy, the same way it would if any other player was injured. “It happens, whether through injury or other things,” Marrone said. “Whether it’s Phillip Thomas or anyone else on this football team – Chandler Jones when he went down – there’s someone behind him who’s looking for an opportunity who’s been working extremely hard.”
