Boston College Eagles wide receiver Harrison Jackson remains in a Texas hospital after being injured in the Eagles’ 48-34 victory over the New Mexico State Aggies Saturday.
Jackson was hit by Aggies’ linebacker Trashaun Nixon in the chest. When Jackson went to the sideline, he collapsed and had trouble breathing.
“We’re trying to get word today if he’ll be able to travel home,” Eagels’ head coach Stev Addazio said in his weekly media session Monday via Jack McCluskey of ESPN Boston. “That’s a serious situation there that obviously we’re very concerned [about] and very in touch with. Our thoughts and prayers are with him. He’s recovering right now and we’re hopeful to get him home here, hopefully tonight, but I don’t know that that will happen.”
In the game, Jackson had a seven-yard touchdown reception. On the season, the 6’2, 201 lb. sophomore out of Round Hill, Virginia has four receptions for 37 yards.
The Eagles, who need just one more victory to be bowl eligible in Addazio’s first season host the North Carolina State Wolfpack at 12:30 pm EST Saturday.
