Florida State’s Nate Andrews out for season with torn pectoral

The Florida State defense has taken another hit.

On Tuesday, Seminoles head coach Jimbo Fisher announced defensive back Nate Andrews will miss the remainder of the 2016 college football season with a torn pectoral muscle.

The senior could apply for a medical redshirt.

For a secondary that is already without star safety Derwin James, it could prove to be a serious blow to the Seminoles down the line. Andrews has 18 tackles on the season.

Florida State returns to action by welcoming Wake Forest to Tallahassee as the Seminoles look to build off of the momentum gained in last weekend’s win over the rival Miami Hurricanes.

Kickoff is set for 3:30 p.m. ET on ESPN.
