We’re one day away from Florida State taking on Boston College, FSU fans. This day however, will be a slow one. We’ll keep you updated as best we can by putting the latest in the news and notes section throughout the day.

Lead Story

Florida State sophomore safety Derwin James will miss the remainder of the 2016 regular season, but could return for a bowl game, head coach Jimbo Fisher said Wednesday.

James tore his meniscus during FSU’s 52-8 victory over Charleston Southern in the home opener and was expected to miss 5-7 weeks. James looked good in pregame warm-ups prior to last week’s win over N.C. State, but doctors were not ready to clear him. It appears James’ recovery time is longer than most thought.

Last season, James ranked first or second on the team in total tackles, solo tackles, sacks, tackles for loss and forced fumbles. In two games this season, James had 11 total tackles and his first career interception.

Between the Lines

There were no FSU athletic events scheduled for Wednesday.
