CHESTNUT HILL — Just after becoming Boston College’s second-leading rusher of all-time, junior tailback Montel Harris sustained a left knee injury and was knocked out of the game against Virgina.
The team announced he would not return for the fourth quarter of the game against Virginia. The school confirmed Harris was taken to St. Elizabeth’s Medical Center for an MRI. He will meet Sunday morning with team physicians and consult with coaches to determine his status for next Saturday’s game against Syracuse.
Harris ran a cutback for four yards and a touchdown late in the third quarter to give Boston College the lead, 17-13, in a game that Eagles needed to become bowl eligible. Harris appeared to injure the knee two runs later on BC’s next offensive series. Before leaving due to his injury, Harris had 24 carries for 114 yards, giving him exactly 3,600 for his career, three more than Mike Cloud, and just 125 behind Derrick Knight.
