Florida State Faces Injuries Ahead of Game Against Clemson
In a crucial matchup against Clemson, No. 4 ranked Florida State will be missing two key starters due to injuries. Left tackle Robert Scott Jr. and safety Akeem Dent will be on the sidelines, leaving the Seminoles at a disadvantage.
Scott, an experienced starting tackle for the team, earned second-team All-ACC honors last year. His absence will be felt, but the Seminoles have a plan in place. Bless Harris, a transfer from Lamar, will step in to fill Scott’s shoes. The young talent has big shoes to fill, but the coaching staff is hopeful that Harris can rise to the occasion.
Dent, a star safety, has unfortunately been plagued with various injuries throughout his career. He has missed a staggering 32 career games and had to sit out last week’s game against Boston College. Dent suffered a left leg injury in Week 2 against Southern Miss, further compounding his absence on the field.
However, it’s not all bad news for Florida State. Center Maurice Smith will be returning to the lineup after recovering from a lower-body injury. Smith, who has made 31 career starts for the Seminoles, is expected to bring stability to the offensive line.
Despite the setbacks, Florida State’s offensive line remains one of the most experienced in the country. The combination of returning starters has accumulated over 200 combined starts, giving them the edge in terms of chemistry and experience.
Unfortunately for Florida State, they have not been able to defeat Clemson in their last seven encounters. The team will be eager to break this losing streak and prove themselves on the field. It won’t be an easy task, as Clemson has not lost a home game in ACC play since 2016. Additionally, their home loss to South Carolina last year snapped a remarkable 40-game home winning streak.
The game between Florida State and Clemson promises to be an intense battle, with both teams looking to secure a victory. The Seminoles will be relying on their remaining starters to step up and make a difference. As for Clemson, they will be aiming to maintain their impressive home record and add another win to their season.
