Boston College fullback Jake Sinkovec was on crutches after injuring his right foot Saturday vs. Maine, but x-rays showed no signs of a fracture. His foot was still bothering him Sunday, coach Frank Spaziani said, and the plan is to evaluate him again and proceed from there.
After catching three passes, including a 15-yard touchdown in the season opener against Miami, Sinkovec was quiet against Maine, leaving with the injury in the third quarter.
An abnormal number of foot injuries have plagued the Eagles since the preseason. Al Louis-Jean and Harris Williams are both wearing boots and using crutches, and will be out for weeks. Running back Rolandan Finch made his return Saturday after missing the opener (along with 10 days of practice leading up to it) with a sprained left foot.
“We've called around to people who are wearing our shoes, but there doesn't seem to be a pattern or anything along those lines,” Spaziani said. “Right now, I'm putting it into the coincidence category.”
After sitting out Saturday, defensive backs Spenser Rositano (bruised lung) and Josh Keyes (concussion) were cleared to practice Sunday and should return for next week's game against Northwestern. The secondary still shined against Maine, picking off two passes, but Spaziani said. "If we get some guys back, we'll be able to solidify some things."
