BC notes: DE Mehdi Abdesmad out for the season

Boston College’s defense absorbed a huge hit Wednesday when Eagles coach Steve Addazio announced junior defensive end Mehdi Abdesmad had suffered a season-ending torn patellar tendon in his left knee.

Abdesmad, a 6-foot-7-inch, 278-pounder from Montreal regarded by Addazio as one of BC’s best defensive linemen, suffered the injury early in the second half of last Saturday’s 48-34 loss to Florida State. He ranked seventh on the team in tackles with 17, including a pair of sacks.
