Boston College suffered a devastating blow to its offense Monday when it was learned that wide receiver Colin Larmond Jr. will miss the entire 2010 season after injuring his lower leg during practice Saturday.

Various reports have surfaced on the severity of the injury, with the BC student newspaper stating that the junior is indeed out for the year. It is possible that the injury involves one of his knees.

The loss is a tremendous blow to the Eagles’ passing game, as Larmond was the team’s leading returning receiver. He averaged 20.6 yards per reception on his 29 catches in ’09 and had four of the Eagles' five longest receptions. He also added five touchdown receptions. Ryan Lindsey, who has one career catch, is currently listed as Larmond's backup.

Billy Flutie is the other starting receiver, and he had only five catches last season — with two going for touchdowns.

Ifeanyi Momah is the only other experienced receiver on the roster, but the coaching staff wanted to use him on the defensive line, as well.

This does not bode well for quarterback Dave Shinskie, who very much played like a freshman at times last season, tossing 14 interceptions. The sophomore may find himself in a lot of trouble if defenses are able to stack the line and stop Montel Harris, making the offense one-dimensional. A one-dimensional offense without any threats at receiver is a recipe for disaster.
