After some concern leading up to Florida State’s meeting with No. 10 Louisville on Saturday, Josh Sweat has joined the Seminoles and will suit up for top ten ACC clash.
Sweat’s father, William Washington, told the Orlando Sentinel that the sophomore defensive end made the trip to Louisville after initially missing the team’s flight. Sweat did not join his teammates on the flight as he was being examined by the team’s medical staff.
Ultimately, it was determined that he could join the team for Saturday’s game.
The details of Sweat’s injury have still not been revealed.
Prior to joining Florida State and playing every game as a freshman in Tallahassee, Sweat suffered a dislocated left knee and torn ACL his senior year of high school. While this injury is not as serious, Sweat’s past proves he is capable of a speedy recovery.
There is no word on how many reps Sweat will receive on Saturday afternoon, but his presence will provide — at the very least — an emotional boost, especially for a defense that lost star safety Derwin James earlier this week.
Florida State and Louisville are set to kick off at noon ET at Papa John’s Cardinal Stadium, home of ESPN’s College GameDay in Week 3. It promises to be a wild atmosphere in Louisville.
