During his press availability on Tuesday, Boston College head coach Jeff Hafley provided updates on two key Eagles players who suffered injuries in Saturday’s game at Louisville - defensive back Brandon Sebastian and tight end Trae Barry.
Hafley said that Sebastian and Barry are day-to-day and could potentially play this weekend, similar to the situation Tyler Vrabel was in last week, per Andy Backstrom of EagleAction:
Jeff Hafley said that TE Trae Barry and CB Brandon Sebastian, both of whom are nursing lower-body injuries sustained at Louisville, are still day-to-day.— Andy Backstrom (@andybackstrom) October 26, 2021
Hafley said they were very limited today but that he's hopeful. Compared it to the LT Tyler Vrabel situation last week.
Obviously, it would be a significant boon to the Eagles if Barry and/or Sebastian are healthy enough to play on Saturday.
Sebastian has been a key contributor to BC’s “bend but don’t break” defense, most notably with his game-sealing interception in overtime against Missouri last month.
Trae Barry has fit seamlessly in to the offense and become an important target in BC’s passing game after transferring in prior to this season.
We will continue to monitor reports from practices and Jeff Hafley’s press availabilities to see if additional information becomes available about the status of Barry or Sebastian leading up to Saturday.
