WR Chris Garrison Out Indefinitely With Broken Leg

Redshirt Freshman WR suffered injury Saturday

NCAA Football: Buffalo at Boston College Bob DeChiara-USA TODAY Sports

On Monday, head coach Steve Addazio confirmed that redshirt freshman Wide Receiver Chris Garrison is out “an indefinite amount of time” with a broken left tibia.

Garrison suffered the injury in the first half of Saturday’s game against Buffalo, pulling up to make a 44-yard reception on an underthrown ball and making a hard landing on his left leg. He was removed from the field on a stretcher.

Addazio said that Garrison’s spirits are high and he’s “doing great,” but at this point he is unable to speculate on whether Garrison would have any chance of returning this season. Given the usual recovery time for an injury of this nature, it’s hard to imagine him being back any time soon, unless maybe BC makes a bowl game, giving extra time to recover.

Garrison, a 6’3’’, 237-pound New Hampshire native, has been one of BC’s weapons this season in its renewed passing attack. He redshirted last season, but has been involved in each game so far this year.

Addazio said in his weekly press conference that the rest of the team is largely injury-free.
