Boston College Eagles senior running back Montel Harris may miss the first and second games of the new season as he continues to recover from knee surgery that kept him out of the Kraft Fight Hunger Bowl last season.
BC announced that Harris would be out for the next three to four weeks, which would put him out for the Eagles' season opener against Northwestern on Saturday, September 3 and their games against Central Florida the week after that.
Harris has rushed for 3,600 yards and 27 touchdowns on 756 carries in his three-year career at BC. In 2010, Harris rushed for 1,243 yards and eight touchdowns on 269 carries. In 2009, Harris rushed for a career-high 1,457 yards and 14 touchdowns on 208 attempts. In his freshman season, Harris rushed for 900 yards and five touchdowns on 179 carries.
