Florida State RB Jacques Patrick reportedly will miss time with knee injury
Florida State running back Jacques Patrick might not play again for a while.
According to reports from Tomahawk Nation and Tallahassee.com, Patrick suffered a knee injury during the Seminoles’ 31-28 loss to Louisville on Saturday that will force him to miss “an extended period of time”.
Patrick, who has 76 carries for 434 yards and a touchdown this season, rushed for 70 yards against Louisville in the loss. He ran for a career-high 162 yards and three touchdowns against Syracuse in 2015.
If Patrick is forced to the sideline, he’d be the latest FSU player to suffer a serious injury. Quarterback Deondre Francois sustained a season-ending knee injury in the Noles’ opener in Atlanta against No. 1 Alabama. Wide receivers Keith Gavin (ankle) and George Campbell (hip) didn’t play on Saturday, while left guard Landon Dickerson has been lost for the season (right ankle).
The Seminoles play Boston College at 8 p.m. ET on Friday on ESPN.
