Andre Cisco, Syracuse football’s preseason All-American, is out for the season

Syracuse football’s preseason All-American safety Andre Cisco is out for the season, coach Dino Babers confirmed Monday morning.

It was the strongest affirmation yet by the SU head coach on the status of one of the program’s most decorated players in recent memory, and it raises the question of whether Cisco, who had been projected to be picked in the first two days of the NFL draft next spring, will suit up in college again.

Cisco suffered a lower-body injury after colliding with a teammate during pregame warm-ups on Sept. 26 against Georgia Tech.
