The Boston College Eagles have lost running back A.J. Dillon for the rest of the game against the Syracuse Orange. The school announced he was done after the team was trailing 28-14 at halftime.
He had 12 carries for 55 yards in the first half. He did not appear to be 100% as he has been banged up.
He has been replaced by Travis Levy as the main ball carrier. The rest of the Eagles backs will attempt to carry the load against the Orange.
The sophomore running back has surpassed the 1,000 rushing yards in a season the past two seasons. He has 227 carries for 1,107 rushing yards. He also has 10 touchdowns.
The 55-yards against the Orange will be his second-lowest tally on the season. He had 39 yards on 16 carries against the Clemson Tigers in Week 11.
In addition, this was just the third-time that Dillon had fewer than 60 yards in a game. Besides those two, he also had 59 yards on 19 carries against the Purdue Boilermakers in Week 4.
