Boston College has been dealt a huge blow, as star running back Andre Williams has left their game against Syracuse with an apparent right arm injury. He was receiving attention on the sideline from the trainers, and has reportedly gone back to the locker room.
Williams has run wild for most of the season, but was held in check during the first half on Saturday. Syracuse limited Williams to 29 yards and a touchdown on only nine carries before he left the game early in the third quarter. It was far from a vintage performance, but their offense is probably in trouble if he can't continue. Myles Willis is getting carries in his absence.
Williams has injected himself into the Heisman discussion by putting up ridiculous numbers this year. He's eclipsed the 2000 yard mark and has taken over 300 carries along the way, averaging 6.5 yards per carry and scoring 16 touchdowns.
