News:Tahj Kimble will have surgery on his troublesome knee injury, and be out an undisclosed amount of time, according to Height Sports.
Analysis:Tahj Kimble hasn't seen a carry in three weeks, but knowing he's out, and Rolandan Finch remains AWOL gives Andre Williams very real value.
News:Tahj Kimble is not one of the team's top three backs in this week's updated depth chart.
Analysis: The Eagles' are looking to shake things up to jumpstart a slow rushing attack, and Tahj Kimble has been passes by freshman David Dudeck. He's safe to release at this point.
News:Tahj Kimble led Boston College with 50 yards rushing on 11 carries against Miami on Saturday, and also added a career-high 130 yards receiving on eight catches.
Analysis:Tahj Kimble did have a fumble, but his involvement in the passing game is exciting. If Rolandan Finch remains out, Kimble could have some flex appeal.
News:Tahj Kimble ran seven times for 26 yards in Wednesday's final scrimmage according to the school's official site.
Analysis: It's nice to see Tahj Kimble back on the playing field, but he didn't exactly set the world on fire. We view him as third in line for carries in this crowded backfield, when it's fully healthy.
News:Tahj Kimble again sat out the Eagles' scrimmage with a bruised leg, notes the Boston Globe
Analysis:Tahj Kimble has yet to see live snaps this fall, and figures to be pretty far behind Andre Williams and Rolandan Finch for carries. That is, unless Finch's foot injury proves to be serious.
News: Boston College running back Andre Williams is listed as questionable for Thursday night's game against Florida State with an abdominal injury.
Analysis: Williams is clearly behind Rolandan Finch, but still managed 16 carries and 72 yards last week against Maryland. With Tahj Kimble (head) out, Finch has this backfield all to himself. Even in a questionable matchup, Finch should see enough carries to warrant a starting spot in deeper leagues.
News: Boston College running back Rolandan Finch ran for 81 yards and a touchdown on 19 carries against Clemson.
Analysis: Not a bad showing for a "third" string running back. Tahj Kimble ran 11 times for 57 yards to spell Finch. Andre Williams (ankle) still looks like the Eagles' "RB of the Future" once Montel Harris (knee) departs, but Finch is a name to watch next fall.
News: Boston College running back Andre Williams (ankle) is "iffy" to play Saturday against Clemson, according to head coach Frank Spaziani.
Analysis: The Eagles look like they'll be missing their top two backs, and will have to rely on freshmen Rolandan Finch and Tahj Kimble to carry the load against a Tiger defense which is giving up 176 yards on average.
News: Boston College running back Andre Williams injured his right ankle during the 2nd quarter of today's game with Wake Forest, and is doubtful to return.
Analysis: The injury looked pretty scary as Williams' leg was stuck under the pile, and his upper body was hit and bent over the pile. X-rays were negative. Montel Harris looks terrific, but is not in game shape yet, so Tahj Kimble and Rolandan Finch will help Harris out. Williams had just two carries for one yard.
