Wide receiver Amba Etta-Tawo said Dungey told him he “was ready to suit back up.”Dungey was knocked out of the game near the end of the first quarter when Clemson linebacker Dorian O’Daniel drove his helmet into Dungey’s chest. O’Daniel’s helmet slid underneath Dungey’s chin, knocking his helmet halfway off.Dungey put his hands to his head while on the ground. He got up with the help of trainers, but looked woozy as he was guided to the locker room with at least one hand on him from a staff member the entire way.Syracuse went on to lose the game, 54-0 with Dungey on the sideline, his helmet replaced with a blue hat and jersey swapped out for a long-sleeve T-shirt. Austin Wilson took over at quarterback and went 17-for-27 and 116 yards and two interceptions.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textBabers said he isn’t concerned with Dungey’s history of concussions because “he got hit by his shoulder he didn’t get a helmet-to-helmet hit.” Last year, the quarterback missed four games and parts of three others because of hits to the head.Etta-Tawo said Dungey looked him in the eye to say he was all right.“Eric could have one leg and he’d still be out there,” Etta-Tawo said. “He told me he was ready to play.”MORE COVERAGE:No. 3 Clemson annihilates Syracuse, 54-0Storify: How did fans take to social media after the game?Gallery: Check out the best sights from SU-Clemson center_img Facebook Twitter Google+last_img
