Boston College captain out for the season with knee injury

Boston College senior captain and center Jon Baker will miss the rest of the 2017 season due to a knee injury. The Millis, Mass., native was injured in the fourth quarter in last week’s victory at Northern Illinois.

Baker will redshirt this season and be able to return next year for the Eagles.

One of the team’s most consistent players and a leader on and off the field, Baker had started 27 consecutive games, the longest streak on the team. In all, Baker has played in 36 straight games for the Eagles prior to today.

Joining Baker and Kamrin Moore as a team captain in 2017 will also be senior wide receiver Charlie Callinan. The team voted prior to the season on captains and Callinan recorded the third-highest total of votes and will represent the Eagles as a captain for the rest of the year.

The New Jersey native leads all BC players with 39 consecutive games played and 29 career starts.
