Boston College will be without starting quarterback Anthony Brown for the rest of the season, coach Steve Addazio said Monday.

“Anthony has a lower leg injury that will require surgery. So we’ll be moving forward. Obviously, our heart goes out to Anthony. He’s a big part of the future of our program, and he’s a great competitor,” Addazio said at his weekly press conference.

“He’ll be back ready to roll next year, and we’ll have had a great year behind his belt to prepare for another great year from now.”

Brown suffered the injury to his right leg in Saturday’s loss to North Carolina State.

The redshirt freshman has started all 10 games for Boston College (5-5), completing 134 of 258 passes for 1,367 yards, with 11 touchdowns and nine interceptions. He was replaced Saturday by senior Darius Wade, who will start Saturday when the Eagles play a nonconference game against Connecticut (3-7) at Fenway Park in Boston.

“We’re going to attack, just like we have been,” Addazio said. “Not really looking for a game manager, to be honest with you. We got out of that mode and grew and got to the point where we’re attacking defenses.”

True freshman E.J. Perry, who has not played yet, will be available, Addazio said. Wide receiver Jeff Smith, who started three games at quarterback in 2015, will also take some practice snaps at quarterback this week.
