Dave Doeren had an update on Brandon Mitchell Monday, and the news is encouraging, though he has not yet been cleared to practice.
Doeren on Brandon Mithcell: "His last X-ray showed a lot of healing...he's off the crutches."— Derek Medlin (@DerekMedlin) September 30, 2013
Doeren says there is "hope for next week" re: Brandon Mitchell. He's putting weight on the foot and running in the pool.— Pack Pride (@PackPride) September 30, 2013
We'll know more once Mitchell finally gets back in practice...for now, it's probably best to consider a Syracuse return very much up in the air. There's a bye week after 'Cuse if he needs it, though I'm doubting he will.
