James Wilder Injury: Update on Florida State RB's Concussion, Likely Return Date
No. 5 Florida State jumped out to a huge first-half lead over No. 3 Clemson during Saturday's crucial tilt, but it came at a price.
According to ESPN's Heather Cox, junior running back James Wilder Jr. was forced from the game after suffering a concussion:

From Natalie Pierre of of the Tallahassee Democrat:
James Wilder Jr. should return to pratice today after sitting out with concussion, per Fisher.— Natalie Pierre (@Natalie_Pierre) October 28, 2013
According to College Football Talk's Kevin McGuire, "James Wilder will miss this weekend’s game due to a concussion."
Wilder isn't FSU's No. 1 running back, as the Seminoles boast some impressive depth at the position, but he has been very effective this season.
Before Saturday's contest, he had tallied 214 yards and two touchdowns on 36 carries (5.9 YPC) through his first five games.
Last season, he tallied an impressive 635 yards and 11 scores on just 110 carries.
Junior Devonta Freeman, who leads the team in rushing, will continue to shoulder the load, while Karlos Williams, who has averaged an absurd 8.7 yards per carry this season, is likely to get more touches as the backup.
