The Florida State Seminoles hope to have quarterback Everett Golson and running back Dalvin Cook back from injury for Saturday’s game against Clemson. Safid Deen of The Tallahassee Democrat reported the update.
Golson missed last weekend’s game against Syracuse due to concussion symptoms, while Cook has been dealing with injuries to his hamstring and ankle. He too sat out the game against Syracuse, and coach Jimbo Fisher would love to have him back for the team’s most important game of the season. Cook has rushed for 1,037 yards and 11 touchdowns this season and could prove to be a thorn in the side of a tough Clemson defense.
There could also be a quarterback controversy brewing, as backup Sean Maguire completed 23 of 35 passes for 348 yards and three touchdowns against Syracuse and could serve as a solid change-of-pace QB for the Clemson game. But the fact remains that though Golson’s overall production has varied from game to game, he has still thrown for 1,659 yards and 11 touchdowns to just one interception.
Coach Fisher briefly addressed the quarterback situation in his Monday press conference.
“We’ll have to wait and see, but we feel very comfortable we have two guys we know now that can come in and play very well,” Fisher said. “They’ve had tremendous games throughout the season.”
Campus Sports will update the statuses of both Cook and Golson as new information becomes available.
Kickoff at Clemson is scheduled for 3:30 p.m. ET on ABC.
