And the injury hits just keep on coming for the Boston College football team.
BC confirmed Thursday that Connor Strachan will miss the remainder of the 2017 season with an unspecified knee injury. The starting linebacker had played in just two of the four games this season before being shut down by the program.
Last season, Strachan led the Eagles in tackles with 80, while his four fumble recoveries were tied for second nationally. He was named honorable mention All-ACC following his true junior season.
In addition to Strachan, fellow starting linebacker Max Richardson has been sidelined indefinitely with his own unspecified knee injury. Richardson, a true sophomore, is currently fifth on the team in tackles with 23.
BC had previously announced that center Jon Baker, who had started 27 straight games in the middle of the Eagles’ offensive line, would be sidelined with a season-ending knee injury. Additionally, wide receiver Charlie Callinan, with 30 starts under his belt, is out for an extended period of time because of a foot injury.
