Boston College defensive end Alex Albright, a senior captain and starter, fractured his right fibula and will miss the rest of the season, according to a school spokesman.
The injury occurred in the third quarter of BC's 24-21 loss to Maryland on Saturday. Albright had nine tackles for loss, 4.5 sacks, an interception and two pass breakups. His season was also cut short in 2008 when he suffered a neck injury, and he sat out the final two games of the 2007 season with a broken left forearm.
Starting safety Wes Davis, who injured his neck and was carted off the field and taken to St. Elizabeth's Hospital during Saturday's game against Maryland, will be discharged from the hospital Sunday. He has full movement and is listed as day to day.
The Eagles have lost five straight games and are winless in the ACC heading into Saturday's home game against Clemson.
