Coming off the high of the win over bitter rival Miami Saturday, FSU Seminoles head coach Jimbo Fisher is dealing with more bad injury news. Tuesday night, he announced that starting senior safety Nate Andrews tore his pectoral muscle in the win and will miss the remainder of the season.

Andrews was not only the “glue” holding the secondary together, but had previously been Florida State’s leading interceptor in the 2013 National Championship season. The Noles will seek NCAA approval for Andrews to get a medical redshirt year, as he has only played in four games this season and could qualify. That decision will come at a much later date in the off season.
FSU hopes to get outstanding corner Derwin James back soon from his knee injury early in the year. That will be a big aide to a Seminoles defense and embattled coordinator Charles Kelly that was improved last Saturday night and should have an easier Saturday coming up with Wake Forest.
