Earlier: Syracuse is down 10-0 early to Notre Dame at Yankee Stadium. Now, their starting quarterback Eric Dungey might be out of action.

Dungey appeared to injure either his leg or back on a keeper. He stood up and tried to shake it off, but dropped to the ground in pain.

After being looked at by trainers, Dungey limped off and into the locker room. He was replaced by backup Tommy DeVito.

Now, DeVito having to play doesn't mean the Orange are screwed. DeVito has replaced Dungey and taken the team to a pair of victories this season, over Florida State and Notre Dame.

He almost threw a touchdown on his first pass of the game, but the ball was knocked away in the end zone.

We will update you on Dungey's condition when more info becomes available.

You can watch Notre Dame-Syracuse on NBC.

Update: Dungey is questionable to return with an "upper body injury."

He looked to be in quite a bit of pain, so we'll see if he's able to return.
