Jimbo Fisher: Florida State RB Jacques Patrick (knee) ‘most likely’ out for rest of the season

As 2-4 Florida State attempts to turn its season around, it appears they’ll have to do so without a key offensive player.

According to Warchant.com, Jimbo Fisher announced on his weekly interview with 97.9-ESPN Tallahassee that junior running back Jacques Patrick tore cartilage in his knee during Florida State’s loss to Louisville and is “most likely” out for the season due to the injury.

Fisher will address the media at his 1 p.m. press conference.

Patrick has 76 carries for 434 yards and a touchdown this season. He rushed for 70 yards in the defeat against Louisville. Patrick had a career-high 162 yards and three touchdowns in 2015 vs. Syracuse.

The injury to Patrick is the latest in a string of health woes for the Seminoles. Quarterback Deondre Francois sustained a season-ending knee injury in Florida State’s season-opening defeat vs.Alabama. Wide receivers Keith Gavin (ankle) and George Campbell (hip) didn’t play on Saturday, and left guard Landon Dickerson is out for the season (right ankle).

Florida State plays at Boston College on Oct. 27 in an 8 p.m. (EST) matchup on ESPN.
