SYRACUSE, N.Y. (AP) Rex Culpepper is back. The smile on his face said it all.

The redshirt sophomore quarterback had his first full workout with Syracuse on Friday after overcoming testicular cancer. He said he broke down and cried when he was told he was cancer-free a week ago at Moffitt Cancer Center in Tampa, Florida.

"When they took my IV out, it was magical," Culpepper said. "To finally walk out of there, I couldn\'t put it into words. I can\'t even describe the euphoria."
