Colin Larmond, Jr., Boston College's top wide receiver, will be sidelined for the entire 2010 season after suffering an injury in Saturday's practice, according to ESPN's Joe Schad.
Schad cited a "knee injury," while initial reports from the team only went so far as to label it a "lower leg injury."
Larmond did not participate in Sunday's scrimmage, and was spotted on the sidelines on crutches while wearing a thigh-to-foot immobilizing brace on his left leg.
The junior appeared in all 13 games last season, led Eagles receivers in average YPC (20.6) and was second in receptions (29), yards (596) and touchdowns (5). Losing Larmond for the season is a particularly damaging injury for the BC offense to endure, says BC Interruption.
[It is] a tough blow to the Eagles receiving corps. It's particularly tough because other WRs -- including Amidon, Flutie and Phillips --have all missed time this fall with minor injuries. BC's receiving corps is one of the youngest, inexperienced units on the team.
The good news, however, is that if there's one position where you can step in and play right away, it's wide receiver. Freshman Bobby Swigert stepped up in the Eagles third scrimmage, catching a Mike Marscovetra touchdown pass and finishing with 5 catches. Sophomore Clyde Lee also caught 5 balls for a game-high 43 yards. Pantale, Phifer, Coleman and Kimble each had three catches.
