Wake Forest true freshman quarterback John Wolford left Saturday's 30-7 loss to Syracuse in the second quarter after absorbing a big hit. The Demon Deacons later announced that Wolford is being evaluated for a possible concussion.
The hit occurred when Wolford was dropping back on a pass play. Syracuse linebacker Dyshawn Davis barged into Wolford's upper-body, altering the quarterback's throw. Orange defensive lineman Robert Welsh snatched the ball and ran it back 42 yards for a touchdown.
Over six-plus games this season, Wolford has passed for 1,063 yards with six touchdowns and 11 interceptions. After Saturday's loss, the Demon Deacons are 2-5 (0-3 ACC).
