According to a Boston College football press release, senior wide receiver Ifeanyi Momah suffered a left knee injury in the Northwestern game. Ugh. The bad luck just continues to poor in for the Eagles.

If you were to ask who the MVP of Saturday's game was, many people would have said Ifeanyi Momah. After a slow start with a couple of drops, he finished the game with 8 catches for 157 yards. This knee injury had to have happened during the 4th quarter when he needed help getting off the field after getting knocked down during a special teams play.

This is a shame, because Momah finally seemed to found his niche with the Eagles. He was named a captain this year, was well respected in the locker room and seemed to have finally become the big target that the Eagles needed. In the game against Northwestern even though he had those two early drops he made some great catches including a long bomb from Chase Rettig in the 4th quarter.

This is the third loss to the wide receiver depth chart in the span of a little over a month. In August Clyde Lee and Shakim Phillips were both lost due to grades and transferring respectively. This is terrible news for BC because it was clear that Colin Larmond Jr. was not a 100% on Saturday, looking completely ineffective against the Wildcats. Is it time for Jonathan Coleman to step up? He has had great games in the past, including 98 yards against Weber State last season. Or are we going to see more from Alex Amidon or dare I say it, Spiffy Evans.

Sad end to Momah's career at the Heights. I was really looking forward to seeing what he was capable of doing this year with a good quarterback.
