Perspective On Florida State Football Preseason Injuries

Fisher doesn't seem too concerned.

I've seen a lot of panic over Florida State's injury situation. It's unwarranted. Here is some perspective for you, FSU football fan.

Florida State's current injury report looks pretty daunting...

OT Daniel Glauser (foot) - not serious
WR Greg Dent (elbow) - not expeted to be serious
TE Dan Hicks (knee) - out 6 weeks
CB Keelin Smith (knee) - not expected to be serious
DT Jacobbi McDaniel (ankle) - could redshirt
DT Anthony McCloud (chest) - 1 or 2 weeks from last Monday.
DT Eddie Goldman (MCL sprain) - not serious
OL Garrett Faircloth (hip) - Jimbo Fisher says not serious
OL Jacob Fahrenkrug (ankle)- serious
RB James Wilder Jr. (shoulder)- minor
RB Mario Pender ("groin")- out for year
DT Derrick Mitchell (disk surgery) - out at least eight weeks
FB Chad Abram (kidney surgery) - moderate

But it's really not once you break it down.

1: Projected starters out for the year (Greg Reid, dismissed for repeated violations of team rules)

0: Projected second-teamers (according to Florida State's depth chart handed out at media day) out for the season

27: Days until Florida State plays a D-I opponent (Wake Forest)

21-24: The number of points by which Florida State is likely to be favored over Wake Forest, which has some awful injury luck right now

2 or 3: Second stringers currently expected to miss the Wake Forest game

34: Days until Florida State faces a team over which it is unlikely to be favored by two touchdowns or more (Clemson)

1 or 2: Second stringers currently expected to miss the Clemson game

If Florida State can avoid major injuries during this final week of camp, it will be in great shape. Teams all over the country are suffering far worse injuries than Florida State has, and the 'Noles have much better depth than those teams do.
