Graduate transfer offensive tackle Ryan Alexander left the Syracuse football team this week, according to a report by Stephen Bailey of Syracuse.com.A Syracuse Athletics spokesperson confirmed Alexander left the program and did not travel to Tallahassee, Florida.Alexander reportedly departs Syracuse amid a two-game skid in which SU now has allowed the most sacks in the country (35) and led head coach Dino Babers to say “everybody’s job is in jeopardy” after the Orange surrendered nine sacks to Pittsburgh.Redshirt freshman Carlos Vettorello originally beat Alexander for the starting right tackle spot out of fall camp. But when Sam Heckel got injured against Liberty, Vettorello filled in for Airon Servais — who moved to center — at left tackle and Alexander plugged in at right tackle. He’s started every game since.Freshman tackle Matthew Bergeron, SU’s top reserve lineman, is in line to start in Alexander’s stead, according to the report. The Orange face Florida State at 3:30 p.m. on Saturday in Tallahassee.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textThis story will be updated with additional reporting.

Up until Chelsea’s equaliser, United had been in control yet they remain sixth in the table, three points behind fourth-placed Chelsea with two games to play, after a third successive league game without a win.In a competitive game, both teams suffered injuries.After Rudiger was forced off in the 64th minute, United defender Eric Bailly, who was making his first league start since 3 February, was helped off six minutes later.With two games of the season left – and United’s hopes of qualifying for next season’s Champions League now out of their own hands – Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is facing a dilemma regarding his goalkeeper.The United boss had to defend De Gea before this game because of the Spaniard’s shaky form.He was culpable for at least one of Manchester City’s two goals in United’s midweek derby defeat at Old Trafford, having been at fault for Lionel Messi’s second in the 3-0 defeat at Barcelona in the Champions League on April 16.“He’s for me been the best player United have had for the last six or seven years,” said Solskjaer ahead of Chelsea’s visit. “He has been absolutely outstanding – going through tough patches is part of a footballer’s career and David will be fine.”But De Gea was anything but fine as Rudiger let fly from 30 yards with Chelsea’s first shot on target two minutes before the interval.It looked a routine save for a player of De Gea’s ability, but the ball spilled from his grasp and Alonso reacted quickly to tuck home his first Premier League goal since 18 August.His save to deny Higuain in the dying moments, with the Chelsea forward clean through, saved United from defeat but De Gea’s inconsistent form remains a worry.United had Sergio Romero on the bench against Chelsea. The Argentine has not made a Premier League appearance since 13 May 2018 when he kept a clean sheet in a 1-0 win against Watford.It remains to be seen whether he will be called into action before the end of a disappointing season in two weeks time.With Tottenham losing at home to West Ham on Saturday and Arsenal losing heavily at Leicester earlier on Sunday, this result means none of the teams placed between third and sixth won over the weekend.Five points separate Tottenham, Chelsea, Arsenal and Manchester United with 180 minutes of the Premier League season remaining.For United, they will hope the teams above them keep dropping points as they look to avoid missing out on a top-four spot for the third time in four seasons.
