Florida State safety Tyler Hunter to miss year with surgery

Melina Vastola-USA TODAY Sports

Tyler Hunter, Florida State's junior starting safety, will miss the rest of the 2013 season after having surgery to remove a bulging cervical disk. Hunter, who had played cornerback and safety in his career, offered versatility to Florida State's defense.

Hunter will redshirt and return in 2014, if healthy, which is expected.

Hunter had previously suffered a back injury in high school, which interrupted a tremendous high school career at Valdosta (Ga.) Lowndes. Hunter could be seen making fists with his hands and releasing them after being hit, perhaps to gauge feeling.

True freshman phenom Jalen Ramsey has taken over for Hunter and played admirably in his spot.
