Florida State appears to have suffered a blow to its offense with an injury to wide receiver Nyqwan Murray.

Florida State WR Nyqwan Murray briefly leaves game against Clemson with first-quarter injury

Florida State wide receiver Nyqwan Murray left in the first quarter with what appeared to be a leg injury on Saturday at Clemson.

Murray went to the Seminoles’ injury tent. After some time there, he limped to the team’s locker room. Murray returned to the sidelines in the second quarter after treatment.

Heading into Saturday, Murray had 28 catches for 437 yards and 2 touchdowns in eight games this season. He is on track for a career year as a junior after making 27 catches for 441 yards and 5 touchdowns in 2016.

Florida State is already thin at wide receiver. Auden Tate and Keith Gavin are playing against the Tigers, but losing Murray would be a big blow to the team. The Seminoles are trying to pull off a road upset and end Clemson’s chances of repeating as national champion. With N.C. State’s win against Boston College, a Clemson loss would send the Tigers to 6-2 in the ACC, a half-game behind the Wolfpack.
