ESPN reported that Dillon was unlikely to return for the second half but Boston College ruled him out for the remainder of the game moments later. The 6-foot, 245-pound Dillon rushed for 116 yards and two touchdowns on 37 carries last week at Florida State to become the first running back in school history with 1,000-yard seasons as both a freshman and a sophomore.

"He feels great. He's gonna be ready to roll tonight," said Addazio. "They're gonna get a full dose of AJ Dillon." Dillon has been forced to miss two games due to the ankle issues, but he still leads the ACC in rushing with 897 yards in seven games for the Eagles (7-2, 4-1).

09/08/18 - (RB) - AJ Dillon, So, 6-0, 245 Boston College running back AJ Dillon surely could have piled up a bunch of yards after his quick start. But Eagles coach Steve Addazio decided the short week and a big lead meant limited playing time for many of his starters. Dillon ran for 149 yards and three touchdowns in less than a quarter, and Boston College beat old, in-state rival Holy Cross 62-14 Saturday in the schools' first meeting in 32 years. Dillon, the Atlantic Coast Conference's preseason player of the year, carried just six times before BC (2-0) went to its reserves late in the first quarter. Quarterback Anthony Brown completed his only two passes for 53 yards. "The tone was set from the first drive," Addazio said. "AJ was running at will and I thought both sides of the ball played extremely well." Eagles' reserve QBs EJ Perry and Matt McDonald each threw for two TDs and cornerback Hamp Cheevers returned an interception 81 yards for a score. "Certainly being able to get our players off the field early was a good thing," Addazio said. Holy Cross (0-2) blocked two punts for TDs. - AP College Football
