Boston College starting QB injured against Clemson

Boston College starting quarterback Anthony Brown was injured in the first quarter of Saturday’s game against Clemson and did not return.

Brown was hit by Tigers defensive tackle Christian Wilkins and landed on his shoulder. He was helped to the sideline and eventually left for the locker room.

Clemson was leading 3-0 at the time when Brown left on BC’s first drive of the game. The Tigers went on to win 27-7.

“I hope their quarterback is OK,” Clemson coach Dabo Swinney said after the game on the ABC broadcast, saying he relayed that concern to BC coach Steve Addazio. “That hurt them.”

Brown was replaced by sophomore EJ Perry, who finished 12-for-21 passing for 98 yards. Perry was sacked three times.

Addazio said after the game that he is not sure what Brown’s status is moving forward, but that Brown was at the hospital.
