DT Kaleb Ramsey and DE Kasim Edebali Doubtful Vs. Clemson

The Eagles struggling defensive line will be shorthanded tomorrow vs. Clemson

The Eagles defensive line may be a bit shorthanded tomorrow vs. Clemson. Boston College defensive end Kasim Edebali and defensive tackle Kaleb Ramsey are both listed as doubtful for tomorrow's 3:30 game with the Tigers.

Edebali is dealing with a shoulder injury while Ramsey will sit out a second straight game with a left foot injury. Ramsey missed 10 of 12 games last season with plantar fascilitis. Coach Spaz on the loss of both Ramsey and Edebali.

"We're better off with those guys there, but once again it's next man up. It becomes a depth issue. Obviously, they're starters for a reason: They're better. But we'll do a couple different things Xs and Os."

The Eagles defensive front hasn't made much noise this season. That's putting it nicely. As a unit, the Boston College defense currently ranks 121st nationally in tackles for loss (averaging just 3.0 a game) and 109th in sacks (averaging 1.0 / game). The loss of Edebali and Ramsey certainly hurts, but maybe this is just the opportunity for a player on the line to step up and help out what has been an ineffective front four through three games.
