FSU redshirt sophomore WR George Campbell (hip) is in "wait and see" mode, according to coach Jimbo Fisher.

Campbell (6'4/207) has been dealing wint the injury all season, and it sounds like things aren't getting much better. Fisher gave the same "wait and see" answer for wideout Keith Gavin. Both players should be considered questionable until Fisher updates their status later this week.

Florida State HC Jimbo Fisher is taking a "wait-and-see" approach with sophomore WR Keith Gavin (knee).

Gavin was unable to play against Duke after the 6-foot-3, 220-pound wideout injured his knee the previous week in a loss to Miami (FL). More information on his status for the game against Louisville should be available later in the week.
Oct 16 - 7:49 PM

Florida State freshman QB James Blackman completed 18 of 21 attempts for 197 yards, one touchdown and two interceptions in the school's 17-10 win over Duke on Saturday.

Head coach Jimbo Fisher called a great game early and Blackman delivered. Obviously, two of his three incompletions went for interceptions and one can be directly attributed to pressure.
Oct 14 - 3:15 PM

FSU junior RB Jacques Patrick carried the ball 18 times for 98 yards in the school's 17-10 win over Duke on Saturday.

The Seminoles were so close to putting two running backs over 100 yards rushing. Patrick and Cam Akers have split time in the last three weeks, and their rushing totals have indicated that is a good decision.
Oct 14 - 3:05 PM

Florida State freshman RB Cam Akers rushed for 115 yards and a touchdown on 15 carries in the school's 17-10 win over Duke on Saturday.

Akers also caught two passes for 20 yards. Akers' 42-yard touchdown run on 3rd and 2 in the fourth quarter won the game for the Seminoles, as he followed his lead blocker, ran through a linebacker's arm tackle and ran away from the secondary for the score. These are back to back strong performances from Akers.

FSU redshirt sophomore WR George Campbell (hip) is questionable for Saturday's game against Duke.

Earlier reports had Campbell (6'4/207) as out with the injury, but the official report has him questionable. If he is able to go, he could play a big role in the offense, as fellow wideout Keith Gavin (knee) has been rule out for the game against the Blue Devils.
Oct 12 - 8:39 PM

Florida State sophomore WR Keith Gavin (knee) has been officially ruled out for Saturday's contest with Duke.

Gavin (6'3/220) suffered the knee injury on a kick return in the third quarter of last week's loss to Miami (FL). Based on comments by coach Jimbo Fisher, it's possible that the talented sophomore will miss multiple weeks with the injury for the Seminoles.
Oct 12 - 8:31 PM

Florida State junior WR Auden Tate (shoulder) has practiced this week and should be able to play against Duke on Saturday.

Tate has been playing through a separated AC joint in his right shoulder suffered against NC State in September. As painful as it outwardly sounds, the 6-foot-5, 218-pounder has not had to miss a game due to the injury. He owns a 16-282-4 receiving line for the campaign.
Oct 12 - 7:39 PM

Florida State junior G Landon Dickerson will miss the remainder of the season due to a right ankle injury.

Dickerson (6'5/306) had been working as Florida State's starting left guard prior to sustaining the season-ending injury. It has been a rough two years for the junior, who missed the final five games of the 2016 campaign courtesy of a torn ACL. With Dickerson out for the remainder of the year, HC Jimbo Fisher and staff are shifting LT Derrick Kelly over to Dickerson's former place on the line. Redshirt freshman Josh Bell will work at left tackle.

Florida State received a verbal commitment from four-star 2018 S Houston Griffith.

Nebraska, Ohio State and Notre Dame were also contending for Griffith's attentions. The 6-foot, 185-pounder ranks as Rivals' No. 47 overall prospect in the 2018 class. With the pledge, FSU is now up to 14 commitments in the class. Griffith impressed during the offseason camp circuit due to his physicality and his sharp, polished style of play.

FSU redshirt sophomore WR George Campbell has yet to recover from a nagging abdomen injury.

Campbell has been dealing with this injury for some time -- it is the same one that ultimately forced him to redshirt last season. Despite the fact that the 6-foot-4, 207-pounder continues to deal with the health concern, he has still managed to play in all four of Florida State's games this season. He's caught six passes for 122 yards on the year.
Oct 10 - 9:49 PM

FSU junior WR Auden Tate continues to work through the separated AC joint in his right shoulder.

Tate dinged up his shoulder three games ago, but has not had to miss any game time since. While the injury has yet to heal up, the junior wideout continues to practice and it looks like this will be something that he can keep playing through so long as he does not re-aggravate it.
Oct 10 - 7:53 PM

Florida State HC Jimbo Fisher said that sophomore WR Keith Gavin has a "pretty good little sprain."

Gavin was sporting crutches and had his right leg encased in a walking boot on Tuesday. He was carted off the field with the leg injury during Saturday's loss to Miami. It's looking very unlikely that he will be able to play against Duke on Saturday. There is no current timetable for his return.
Oct 10 - 6:50 PM

FSU freshman RB Cam Akers rushed for 121 yards on 20 carries in Saturday's 24-20 loss to Miami.

We've been waiting for five-star frosh Akers to have his breakout game. Saturday's showing might not quite have been of the supernova variety, but it was incredibly encouraging nonetheless. Not only did the 5-foot-11, 210-pounder lead Florida State in rushing yardage in the game, he received 20 carries to Jaques Patrick's 11 -- a strong sign that HC Jimbo Fisher and staff are beginning to trust Akers to a greater degree.
Oct 7 - 8:08 PM

Florida State sophomore WR Keith Gavin was carted off the field in the third quarter with an apparent right knee injury.

Gavin was injured on a third-quarter kick return. He was in visible pain on the field and was unable to put any weight on his right leg prior to being carted off. More information as to the extent of this injury should come to light in the coming days.
