FSU Running Back Dalvin Cook Had Shoulder Surgery

Florida State running back Dalvin Cook is out for the rest of the spring.

Florida State running back Dalvin Cook had shoulder surgery on Tuesday after hurting it during a pass protection drill. Cook, the single season rushing leader in Florida State history, will miss two or three months before being fully healthy. Cook has had issues with this shoulder before. He missed the first spring of his career with a shoulder injury in 2014.

Florida State head coach Jimbo Fisher said it was a minor surgery. 

"Dalvin has surgery on his shoulder," Fisher said. "Cleaned up the back of his shoulder. He'll be back in a couple months. He'll be ready to go in June, July and train and do everything. There were some things in there and we had him checked. It was questionable to do it, but went ahead and did it. Nothing drastic. He'll just be immobilized for two months."

With Cook out Florida State will have two healthy scholarship running backs available for the spring game this weekend. Jacques Patrick and Ryan Green will take the reps during the game.
