With an eye toward playing in the season opener against Weber St. on Saturday, Boston College linebacker Mark Herzlich is practicing in pads Tuesday for the first time since being diagnosed with Ewing’s sarcoma in May of 2009. He missed all of training camp due to a broken right foot he suffered prior to camp. “I wouldn’t rush back if there was a big risk of ruining the rest of the season, obviously. But at the same time, I don’t see that risk as really a problem right now, so coming back this week isn’t going to jeopardize the season,” said Herzlich before heading onto Shea Field for practice.
