A few weeks back, we learned that FSU senior defensive back Nate Andrews would miss the rest of the 2016 season with a pectoral injury. Now another season-ending injury has presented itself to a ‘Nole senior on the other side of the ball, as starting wide receiver Jesus “Bobo” Wilson, who did not return to action after being carted off the field against Wake Forest due to a foot injury, will miss the rest of 2016.

Sources told Tomahawk Nation at the time that Wilson was done, but Monday, Jimbo Fisher said that Wilson tried to rehab the foot injury. That attempt was unsuccessful. Wilson had surgery and his career is over.

Wilson, who lead Florida State with 29 catches for 388 yards at the time of injury, is a 5-10, 184-pound product out of Miami’s Christopher Columbus High School. He finishes his career with 133 catches for 1562 yards and eight touchdowns.

In Wilson’s absence, sophomore NyQuan Murray has stepped up in a big way, catching 20 passes for 295 yards, 85 percent of which have come in the last two games.
