Boston College linebacker Mark Herzlich, set to return to practice today after missing all of last season while battling cancer, was held out from practice today with a foot injury, according to a school spokesman. Herzlich had an X-ray on his right foot Monday morning and he is listed as day-to-day.
This was obviously very frustrating for Herzlich, who spoke with reporters today. It happened during a routine drill, and it sounds like the change in surface from sand to turf was what did it. The one thing Herzlich's fans and teammates can take solace in? Herzlich has overcome far worse before. By comparison, this is only a minor setback.
