Just today, Phil Jurkovec was put on Boston College’s active roster and will play for the Eagles tonight against Virginia Tech for the Red Bandana game.
This is incredible news for Boston College, as they are the midst of a 4-game losing streak and a quarterback controversy that has left Eagles fans yearning for Jurkovec’s strong arm and great talent.
It will be interesting to see how Jurkovec plays coming back from injury. He sustained an injury in his hand Week 2 this year against UMass and was deemed “unlikely” to return this season. Either his recovery timeline went by quicker than expected, or head coach Jeff Hafley has rushed him back to give this team an energy boost that is desperately needed. Either way, this news has come out of nowhere, so it wouldn’t be surprising if Jurkovec is a bit slow to get up to his typical level of play.
