FSU likely out its 2nd key receiver in as many weeks

Horrible injury luck continues to hamper the ’Noles.

NCAA Football: Florida State at Wake Forest Jeremy Brevard-USA TODAY Sports

Many of you want to see the end of the Willie Taggart era at Florida State. But no one wants to see a student-athlete’s season come to an end via injury, and for the second straight game, it appears that’s the case for the injury-plagued ’Noles at the receiver position.

Sophomore WR Ontaria Wilson sustained a shoulder/collar-bone injury during the second half of FSU’s loss to Wake Forest on Saturday night, and it’s being reported that, just like fellow second-year receiver Keyshawn Helton after last week’s Clemson game, Wilson will likely miss the rest of 2019 (per a story citing multiple sources from Noles 247’s Brendan Sonnone).

Helton was Florida State’s No. 2 WR. Wilson was its No. 3. Top target Tamorrion Terry remains intact, but filling the void cast by Wilson will probably require an increased presence from Tre’Shaun Harrison, yet another promising Seminole sophomore, or junior D.J. Matthews. FSU just can’t buy a break at this point. Not the good kind, anyway.
