It’s been a season to forget for the FSU football program and their loyal fan base. Now, thanks to an injury to running back Jacques Patrick, it looks like things are only getting worse.
On Monday morning, Seminoles head coach Jimbo Fisher appeared on radio and said Patrick is “most likely” out for the year.
According to Safid Deen of the Orlando Sentinel, Patrick suffered a knee injury during this weekend’s 31-28 loss to Louisville at Doak Campbell Stadium which dropped the team’s record to a disappointing 2-4 on the season.
Patrick, a junior, was the team’s starting running back.
If his season is officially over, Patrick ends his junior campaign with 434 yards rushing and a touchdown. He would become the third offensive starter lost for the season, joining quarterback Deondre Francois and offensive lineman Landon Dickerson.
With Patrick on the sidelines, the Seminoles will be turning to true freshman Cam Akers, who actually leads Florida State in rushing with 454 yards and a touchdown.
Florida State returns to action Friday night on the road against Boston College.
