Week 1: Things we learned
From Johnny Manziel's controversial return to Washington's statement win, here are the 41 things we learned from the first weekend of college football play. More ...
The senior Flemming (6-foot-3, 200 pounds) made his first career start last week in a loss to Penn State. He had two catches for 18 yards in the game, the first two receptions of his career. He was injured this week and needs surgery.
"It was amazing," Flemming told the Syracuse Post-Standard earlier this week about his first career reception. "I've been waiting on that for my whole career. To finally get it and help the team, it felt great."
Flemming, who has a 37.5-inch vertical leap, has not redshirted, so he can return next season if he so chooses.
Junior Jeremiah Kobena (6-0, 182) seems his likely replacement Saturday when the Orange play at Northwestern. Kobena had one reception for 55 yards last week.
