SYRACUSE, N.Y. (AP) - Boston College tailback Andre Williams, the nation's leading rusher, was injured Saturday in the third quarter against Syracuse.
Held to 24 yards on 8 carries in the first half, Williams was hit hard on a run early in the third quarter and went to the locker room. There was no word from the team on his status.
Williams had averaged 299 yards rushing the past three games to put him at 2,073 yards and ramp up the Heisman Trophy talk for the senior.
He had 29 yards on 9 carries when he was hurt.
