Florida State Seminoles starting defensive back Trey Marshall suffered a biceps injury in Saturday’s game against Louisville and will miss the remainder of the season, according to head coach Jimbo Fisher. Warchant.com confirmed Fisher’s announcement on its official Twitter.
A former three-star recruit out of Columbia High School in Lake City, Florida, Marshall has posted 33 tackles and a sack since first stepping on the field last season. This is not the first time Florida State has had to play without him, as he was ejected from the team’s game against Miami for targeting.
This is where things could get complicated for the Seminoles, now that Marshall is done for the season. Florida State has Georgia Tech on its plate this weekend, a team whose offense takes full advantage of weak defenses. The Yellow Jackets have lost five games in a row, but this could be a prime opportunity for them to get back in the win column since FSU’s secondary is looking fairly patchwork at this point.
Kickoff is slated for 7 p.m. ET in Atlanta and will be broadcast on ESPN2.
