Updates from Tuesday, Dec. 3

Rich Thompson of the Boston Herald provides a statement from Boston College coach Steve Addazio discussing Andre Williams' injury status and potential return to the field:

“Obviously he had to have X-rays and different things to see the severity of the shoulder injury which occurred very early in the game,” Addazio said. “It was just an extension of what he had and unfortunately he took a shot right on that spot and then a few more. . . . I’m sure he’ll be ready to roll by the time we play a bowl game but we don’t know exactly how long that will be.”

Pete Thamel of Sports Illustrated previously reported on Sunday, Dec. 1, that Williams would be ready for bowl season:

BC's Andre Williams left game yesterday after re-aggravating a shoulder injury. He will return for bowl game.
