Orange lose Weaver
Syracuse wide receiver Aaron Weaver
is out for the season with a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee. The fifth-year senior hurt the knee in practice Tuesday. Weaver, who transferred to Syracuse after Hofstra eliminated its football program following the 2009 season, caught six passes for 88 yards in Syracuse’s first two games . . . The former player linked to the suspension of Georgia receiver A.J. Green
faces a felony drug charge in Georgia last year. Chris Hawkins
, 28, is charged with felony trafficking of cocaine and misdemeanor marijuana possession stemming from the April 2009 incident. The former North Carolina and Marshall defensive back bought Green’s jersey in a transaction that led to Green’s four-game NCAA suspension.
