BOSTON (AP) Boston College quarterback Anthony Brown has left Saturday's game against North Carolina State on crutches with a right leg injury.

The redshirt freshman, who has helped sparked BC's three-game winning streak, crumpled to the ground in pain after making a cut deep in Wolfpack territory without being hit early in the second quarter. His right knee appeared to buckle on the cut.

Brown was on the ground for a while before being helped off without putting any weight on the leg. After being examined on the sideline, he left on crutches.

Brown, who won the starting job over graduate Darius Wade during the preseason camp, has thrown for more than 1,300 yards with 11 TDs, and rushed for another score.

Wade entered the game after Brown was injured.
