With a key and crucial Atlantic Coast Conference game coming up on Saturday against North Carolina State, Boston College is the healthiest it has been since the first game of the season.
"We're good,'' said Boston College coach Jeff Jagodzinski before this afternoon's practice. "I think we will be 100 percent.''

That would mean that freshman running back Josh Haden (ankle) and cornerback DeLeon Gause (ankle) are both ready to resume full time duties.

Haden has played sporadically in the past few weeks. He carried the ball 3 times for 17 yards in last week's 42-0 win over Rhode Island, making only a cameo appearance, primarily because his presence was not necessary for the Eagles to win..

Gause has been a DNP for the past two weeks as he recovers from a high ankle sprain suffered against Georgia Tech on Sept. 6th.

Jagodzinski said both players will be in the playing rotation against N.C. State.
Also in the rotation will be back up QB Dominique Davis, who came off the bench against Rhode Island with the score 0-0 and took the Eagles on four TD drives in five series, which produced a 28-0 halftime lead.

Jagodzinski said that Chris Crane will remain the starter, but that both QB's will play. "Probably somewhere near the end of the first quarter,'' said Jagodzinski when asked about Davis' appearance. "We'll see how we're doing. But he (Davis) is going in regardless. You have to commit to it. Have to let him go in there and let him play.''
