BC's defensive line in trouble

Boston College defensive lineman Kaleb Ramsey, who was expected to see significant time in the rotation at left tackle, is still at home in Pittsburgh and has not reported for camp, which begins today, according to a school spokesman. Ramsey's status with the team is undetermined, and his absence is for personal reasons.

Also missing from the start of camp will be senior left tackle Damik Scafe, who is listed as day-to-day with back problems. Scafe started 10 games last year and led the Eagles' defensive linemen with 21 solo tackles. These two absences are a significant hit to a defensive line that already must replace two starters from 2009 in Austin Giles and Jim Ramella.

Sophomore Bryan Murray is listed as the starting left tackle on a depth chart just released minutes ago, and Conor O'Neal is listed as the starting right tackle. Murray played in five games last year and had four tackles. O'Neal, a sophomore, played in eight games last year as a true freshman.
