FSU backup QB Jacob Coker out indefinitely

Florida State quarterback Jacob Coker is out indefinitely after suffering a meniscus tear that will require surgery, Seminoles coach Jimbo Fisher anounced on Monday.

The sophomore was injured in the second half of FSU’s 59-3 victory over Wake Forest this past Saturday. He will have surgery on Tuesday and doctors will be able to determine the timetable for his return then.

“It could be a week, two weeks,” Fisher said. “We’ll have to wait until they get in there, because it could be five or six.”

Serving as Jameis Winston’s backup, Coker has seen action in all but two games and is 18 of 36 for 250 yards on the year, with an interception. Redshirt freshman Sean Maguire, who has just two pass attempts, will take over the backup role.

With Coker out, it might force Fisher to leave Winston in for longer during blowouts, which could improve Winston’s stats and help bolster his case for the Heisman, although it’s likely he’ll just be handing the ball off for the most part.

    Blowhio State Suckeye fans will claim Florida State is “running up the score” if Jameis has to play until the early 4th, instead of the first series of the 3rd.

    Yep we all get it, this Wright guy above doesn’t like the Buckeyes. Everyday same thing over and over. We get it. Get some new material man. Couple good years as of late for FSU and you’d rather talk about Ohio St. Your like a Viking fan always talking about the Packers. We get it your envious.

    You fools claimed we were running up the score when we weren’t, so yes, I am going to respond in kind (and accurately).

    And you have GOT to be kidding if you think a superior program is envious of that joke Ohio State team LMAO. You’ve been playing football for nearly three times as long, so don’t even think about pulling that other tactic.

    Unlike Ohio State, FSU was consistently great for the better part of 20 years and took 6 or 7 years off. But miss me with that nonsense as if FSU is Indiana or Wisconsin.

    I am surprised the backup QB actually got into the game at all, FSU ALWAYS runs up the score and they never take out the starter unless he is hurt. They are classless, Jimbo, who names their son Jimbo??? OMG! he’s is a scumbag and a cheater who takes his lessons from Belichek in NE, it’ll all come out in 5 years or so watch and see.

    Troll. And not a very good one. Nice try.

    Winston has barely seen the 2nd half, and not one coach has complained that we’ve run up the score on them.

    Thank you “jimmy53”! I was about to light into “justalonewolf”. Hey lame ass, if you’re going to comment on a message board which can be seen by everyone and not just your circle of Ohio State supporters, get it right. You’re entitled to your opinion, not your own set of facts. Jimbo has pulled his starters in every game this year even if it didn’t happen until late in some games like Pittsburgh, Clemson and Miami. In the NC State and Maryland games, the starters played just one series in the 2nd half.
