Star Syracuse Orange DB Andre Cisco out for rest of season

SYRACUSE, N.Y. -- Syracuse preseason All-American defensive back Andre Cisco will miss the rest of the season, coach Dino Babers said Monday toward the end of his weekly news conference.

Cisco was inserted as the rover in the Orange's new 3-3-5 defensive scheme and had 11 tackles and one interception in the two games he played. He was injured in a freak collision with a teammate in pregame warm-ups for the Georgia Tech game in the Carrier Dome just over two weeks ago and hasn't played since.

Cisco, a junior safety from Long Island, entered the season with 12 interceptions, tops among returning players in the Football Bowl Subdivision.

Babers also said he hadn't received a medical update on quarterback Tommy DeVito. The redshirt junior suffered an injury to his left leg when he was sacked for a fifth time late in a 38-24 home loss to Duke on Saturday and had to be helped off the field.
