Florida State Linebacker Ro'Derrick Hoskins Injury Update

Florida State head coach Jimbo Fisher updates the injury status of one of Florida State's top linebackers.

Linebacker Ro'Derrick Hoskins left Saturday's game against UT Chattanooga with an apparent knee injury, and did not return. After the game Florida State head coach Jimbo Fisher did not seem optimistic about the injury.

"Sore," Fisher said. "I'll know after we evaluate him. He got a MCL or something on his knee right there."

After evaluating Hoskins over the weekend, Fisher was much more optimistic about him.

"Much better than we thought," Fisher said. "Still, that door's open. He may sit out today, but he's walking on his own. We thought it was worse. He's moving around a lot better. Very excited about that.

Hoskins is fourth on the team in tackles with 52 and has been one of the keys to Florida State's defensive turnaround. With the lack of depth at the linebacker position, getting him back for the Florida game would be a big help for the Seminoles defense.
