RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) — Boston College running back AJ Dillon won't play at No. 23 North Carolina State on Saturday after injuring his left ankle last weekend.

In an email Saturday, team spokesman Jason Baum said Dillon didn't make the trip to Raleigh.

The 6-foot, 245-pound sophomore ranks fifth in the Bowl Subdivision ranks in rushing at 130.4 yards per game. The Eagles are 9-3 in the 12 games since Dillon became the starter last October at Louisville.

Coach Steve Addazio had said this week that Dillon would be a game-time decision.

Travis Levy is listed as the No. 2 running back on the depth chart, but it was receiver Ben Glines who carried the load after Dillon went out with 23 carries for 120 yards and a score.
