He was carried off the field and was not putting any weight on the injury.“All I know is I heard like four pops and I was just down for the rest,” Callahan said. “I’m not really sure what happened. It was kind of a big blur.”Two seasons ago when he played at Villanova, Callahan dislocated his ankle in the same foot and had surgery. After the game on Friday, he was on crutches and had his right foot in a boot.Korab Syla replaced Callahan for the remainder of the game.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text“Injuries happen in our sport,” SU head coach Ian McIntyre said. “To lose Liam was disappointing but ultimately, it’s a team sport.” Comments Facebook Twitter Google+last_img
