Syracuse WR Harris misses game after obscene gesture
A week after his televised obscene gesture, Syracuse receiver Taj Harris did not travel with the team for Saturday’s game at No. 1 Clemson.
Harris, who has 26 catches for 434 yards and four touchdowns in five games, apologized to his teammates earlier this week for showing his middle finger to a television camera during the Orange’s 38-21 home loss to Liberty.
After the game, Syracuse athletic director John Wildhack called Harris’ actions “inappropriate” and “unacceptable” and said his behavior would be addressed by the football program.
“A young man making a mistake,” Orange coach Dino Babers said on Monday. “We all understand.”
A 6-foot-2 junior, Harris has 103 receptions for 1,558 yards and nine touchdowns in 29 career contests.
