Aug. 29, 2000
CHESTNUT HILL, Mass. - Boston College head football coach Tom O'Brien announced on Tuesday afternoon that sophomore inside linebackers Marco Williams and Jerome Ledbetter will miss Saturday's season-opening game due to injuries.
Williams has a torn lateral meniscus in his left knee that was suffered in practice and will undergo arthroscopic surgery on Wednesday, Aug. 30, at St. Elizabeth's Medical Center in Newton.
"Marco has a chance to return to play by the Navy game," says O'Brien. After the West Virginia game, Boston College travels to Army on Sept. 9 and then has an off week before its home-opener against Navy on Sept. 23.
Ledbetter suffered a right knee injury during practice and will have an MRI performed on Wednesday, Aug. 30. He will be diagnosed based on results of the MRI.
