On Wednesday, Jimbo Fisher announced that junior receiver George Campbell will miss the remainder of the season due to implications stemming from his core muscle surgery that ended his 2016 season early. Fisher said that the implications that Campbell is currently suffering from only affects 8-10% of people who undergo his initial surgery. The head coach added that the 6’4 receiver may need surgery once again, however he is not positive.

The former five-star recruit played in the first four games this season and amassed 122 receiving yards on six receptions. His freshman year, he had three receptions for 42 yards.

Campbell had missed the previous two games, so the current rotation will not shift. Auden Tate on the outside and Nyqwan Murray in the slot are the only Seminoles with notable experience. Walk-on receiver Jared Jackson and true freshman Tamorrion Terry have also gotten play time in those two games since Campbell’s departure. Keith Gavin, who is currently injured, will add much needed depth to the rotation once he returns.
