Chris Pantale Injury Update: Pantale To Miss 6-8 Weeks, Surgery Possible

CHESTNUT HILL - One day after breaking a bone in his right foot, Boston College Eagles senior tight end Chris Pantale said that he will likely miss six to eight weeks of recovery time, and surgery is possible. Pantale had been favoring the foot at practice and trying to play through the injury, but could not do so.

Frank Spaziani, the Eagles head coach, shared the news of Pantale's injury at media day.

"Chris injured himself yesterday," Spaziani said on Friday. "He broke a bone in his foot. We're still not quite sure how long this is going to impact [us], but it's significant time. I just got the information this morning. I don't want to put a time on it, but it's significant."

Pantale has played three seasons at BC, amassing 797 receiving yards and five scores. Last season, Pantale started 12 games and caught 21 balls for 236 yards and three scores.

Boston College Football Media Day 2012: Frank Spaziani Talks About Struggles, Team Atmosphere

CHESTNUT HILL - Frank Spaziani and the Boston College Eagles football team held their annual media day on Friday afternoon inside Conte Forum, giving reporters and fans the first chance to talk with and learn about this year's team as it prepares for the new season.

Spaziani opened up media day with his press conference at noon, in which he addressed the topic of the team's recent poor performance in the win-loss column. Boston College is coming off of a disappointing 4-8 season in which it failed to qualify for a bowl game for the first time in 12 seasons, which resulted in a lot of criticism being tossed Spaziani's way.

"The trend with wins and losses is very obvious to everybody, but the program is going north, not south," said the fourth year head coach "There are a lot of situations that have occurred, and I'm not going to revisit history. I understand where we're at and I understand that we want to win. The players understand that and we know where we have to go."

Boston College has had a declining record ever since Spaziani took over as head coach in the 2009 season. That year, the Eagles posted an 8-5 record and lost in the Emerald Bowl. The following season, Boston College declined to 7-6 (the Eagles rallied to win their final five games to clinch a bowl berth, but lost in the Kraft Fight Hunger Bowl against USC).

Spaziani did note, however, that the attitude on the team is very good even in spite of the team's struggles over the past few seasons, a sentiment which several players echoed.

"We have a tremendous attitude with our players right now," said Spaziani. "You can feel a difference in the locker room, it's a carry over and it's been from the winter. I think they understand, now we've got a lot of work to do, a lot of hard work before September 1, a lot of dog days. Right now, we're well on our way and we have to see how it all shakes out."

Boston College Football Preseason: Eagles Picked 5th In Preseason Poll

The Boston College Eagles turned up in the fifth spot of the ACC preseason poll on Wednesday. Voted on by the ACC media, they picked the Eagles to top only Maryland in the Atlantic Division.

Florida State was selected to win the Atlantic Division as well as the conference. Voters opted for Virginia Tech to win the Coastal Division.

The Eagles finished fifth in the Atlantic Division last year, after being picked to finish fourth in the preseason poll. The polls are notorious for going off last season's standings, so the Eagles should not be written off just yet.

The rest of the standings in the poll looked like this:

Atlantic Division
1. Florida State Seminoles
2. Clemson Tigers
3. N.C. State Wolfpack
4. Wake Forest Demon Deacons
5. Boston College Eagles
6. Maryland Terrapins

Coastal Division
1. Virginia Tech Hokies
2. Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets
3. North Carolina Tar Heels
4. Virginia Cavaliers
5. Miami Hurricanes
6. Duke Blue Devils
