Syracuse DB Ja’Had Carter sent to hospital with upper-body injury

There was a scary scene at practice on Tuesday as one of Syracuse football’s top defensive backs was carted off the field on a stretcher.

Ja’Had Carter, who has started 18 games over the past two seasons, suffered an upper-body injury during a goal-line drill.

Head coach Dino Babers told reporters after practice that he was sent to the hospital as a precaution. Baber added that Carter has feelings in all of his limbs and extremities.

The sophomore totaled 102 tackles, two interceptions, four pass breakups, a fumble recovery, and a forced fumble over the past two seasons.
