Syracuse Orange WR Taj Harris not playing a week after making obscene hand gesture

Syracuse's Taj Harris, who led the ACC in receiving yards entering Saturday, did not play against No. 1 Clemson after not making the trip.

Last week in a loss to Liberty, Harris was seen making an obscene hand gesture at television cameras filming the Syracuse bench. Athletic director John Wildhack said after the game that the gesture was "inappropriate" and "unacceptable."

Coach Dino Babers said earlier this week that Harris had apologized to the team on Sunday and that the discipline would be handled internally.

"That stuff is always in-house. That's family business," Babers said after Saturday's 47-21 loss. "I love that young man and I want nothing but the best for him and his mom."

Harris leads Syracuse with 434 receiving yards and four touchdowns and has made 24 career starts.
