James Wilder Injury: Florida State RB Leaves Clemson Game with Concussion
No. 5 Florida State held a dominant lead over the No.5 Clemson Tigers going into halftime Saturday on the road, but the team experienced a serious loss in the process as running back James Wilder Jr. left the game after suffering a concussion.
Patrik Nohe of the Miami Herald broke the news:
James Wilder has a concussion. He's done today. Looks like it'll be Freeman and Williams from here on.— Patrik Nohe/M_Herald (@PatrikNohe_MH) October 20, 2013
Before leaving with the injury, Wilder had carried the ball just five times for 12 yards quarterback Jameis Winston handled the bulk of the work for the offense.
Coming into the game, Wilder had carried the ball just 36 times for 214 yards as a complementary back behind starter Devonta Freeman and change-of-pace and explosive back Karlos Williams.
Florida State will be just fine with the duo of Freeman and Williams moving forward should Wilder be forced to miss time, but the absence of their bruising back in short-yardage situations will be felt until Wilder's return.
