The goal of getting to the ACC championship game for the third time in four years is almost certainly gone, but making it into a post season bowl game for a 12th consecutive season is taking on new meaning for Boston College
Senior defensive end and co-captain, who suffered a broken right fibula in Saturday's 24-21 loss to Maryland will not require surgery and will be sidelined for six weeks.
If you do some quick math, six weeks from last Saturday is Dec. 4th, which is the date of the ACC championship game. But the first bowl game that BC could participate in is not until Dec. 27th which would give Albright more than enough time to return.
""They are waiting for the swelling to go down before they can put a cast on it,'' said BC coach Frank Spaziani before practice this afternoon
BC middle linebacker Luke Kuechly made it clear what one of the team goals will be, starting with Saturday's game against Clemson at Alumni Stadium.
"""The biggest thing we need to do is win out,'' said Kuechly. "Alex said he wants to come back and play in a bowl game and we are going to do everything we can to do that and give him a chance.''
With a 5 game losing streak and a 2-5 record, the Eagles have small margin for error. They can lose one more time before losing any chance of reaching the six victory minimum required for bowl eligibilty.
Spaziani said that safety Wes Davis, who suffered a neck injury against Maryland, is definitely out for the Clemson game and will consult with his doctors about what comes next...Cornerback DeLeon Gause (knee) is questionable for the Clemson game with a decision coming in the next few days.
