is getting close to getting back on the field from his Achilles injury he suffered earlier this year which would be good news after the loss of Adam Choice for the year.

"This week we're going to cut him loose," Swinney said. "He's going to rep. Obviously with Adam [Choice] out he will take those reps. It is a positive that we have a guy like him that's close to being ready to play."

Swinney said there is a chance Dye could play against Syracuse but it depends on how he looks in practice this week.

"I've got to watch him this week and see what he does," Swinney said. "Ask me on Wednesday. He's cleared from a doctor's standpoint but we'll have to evaluate where he is."
