Boston College's Montel Harris will have to miss still more football due to his lingering knee injury.

Another setback for Boston College Eagles running back Montel Harris, who'd received a fifth year of eligibility due to a knee injury that marred most of his 2011 season. Last year's ACC Preseason Player of the Year and BC's all-time leading rusher, Harris played in only two games in what would've been his final season.

From the school:

Boston College football coach Frank Spaziani announced today that senior running back Montel Harris will not participate in spring practice due to a re-aggravation of the left knee injury that sidelined him for much of last season. Harris participated in this past Saturday's first practice of the spring season and complained of soreness afterwards.

Dr. Tom Gill performed surgery on the knee last August. Harris missed the first three games of the 2011 season and returned for only two games, vs. UMass and Wake Forest, before missing the remainder of the season.

Harris missed the first three games of the year, then returned only to re-injure his knee. With his leg still showing signs of wear, the Eagles have no choice but to rest him as much as possible until summer.
