Florida St. offensive lineman Dickerson tears ACL

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) — Florida State offensive lineman Landon Dickerson will miss the rest of the season after tearing the ACL in his right knee during practice earlier this week.

Coach Jimbo Fisher made the announcement on Thursday as the 19th-ranked Seminoles (5-3, 2-3 ACC) wrapped up preparations for Saturday’s game at North Carolina State (4-4, 1-3).

Dickerson, a 6-foot-5 freshman, started the past seven games at right guard. Wilson Bell, who started the Sept. 5 opener against Mississippi, is expected to get the start while Derrick Kelly could also see playing time.

Fisher also said that wide receiver Jesus “Bobo” Wilson is out indefinitely due to a foot injury that occurred during the Oct. 15 game against Wake Forest. Wilson missed last Saturday’s game against No. 3 Clemson. Nyqwan Murray started in Wilson’s place and had six receptions for 96 yards and a touchdown.
