BC seeking medical hardship waivers for 2 players
Sunday, October 9, 2011
BOSTON (AP) -- Boston College plans to seek medical hardship waivers for career rushing leader Montel Harris and defensive tackle Kaleb Ramsey that would allow them to play next season.
Harris has been limited by a knee injury to just two games for the Eagles (1-5), running 31 times for 135 yards. He reinjured his left knee on against Wake Forest on Oct. 1, a game in which he set the record with 3,735 yards, 10 more than the mark set in 2003 by Derrick Knight. Ramsey, bothered by a foot injury, has played in one game with two assisted tackles.
Both are seniors.
Coach Frank Spaziani said doctors believe the injuries will sideline the players for the rest of the year. The NCAA can grant such waivers to players with season-ending injuries who have appeared in fewer than 30 percent of their team's games, with none after the midpoint of the season.
