Head coach Frank Spaziani seemed mildly optimistic Sunday that Boston College would have Montel Harris available for this weekend’s regular-season finale.
Unfortunately, any optimism being felt proved to be false.
The school announced Monday that Harris underwent arthroscopic surgery on his knee today and will miss 3-6 weeks, which definitely knocks the running back out of Saturday’s game against Syracuse and could keep him off the field for the Eagles’ bowl game as well depending on the date. Harris suffered what turned out to be a torn left lateral meniscus in his left knee in the third quarter of the win over Virginia Saturday.
Freshman Andre Williams will take Harris’ place in the starting lineup.
Harris’ 1,243 yards and eight touchdowns leads the Eagles. He’s currently the No. 11 rusher in the nation at 113 yards per game.
