GAINESVILLE – A season plagued by injuries just keeps getting worse.
Safety Hamsah Nasirildeen, defensive tackle Cory Durden and offensive lineman Ryan Roberts were injured in the first half of Florida State’s game at Florida on Saturday night.
Nasirildeen had an aircast placed on his left leg, and he was helped to a cart. The junior did the chop as the cart made its way to the locker room. Nasirildeen surpassed the 100-tackle mark on Saturday.
Durden was able to slowly walk off the field and go into the FSU injury tent. But the redshirt sophomore was later seen on crutches making his way to the locker room. Durden did return to the game on Florida’s first drive of the third quarter.
Roberts went down with an injury, walking slowly to the sideline with the help of trainers. It’s not clear what his injury was. He returned later in the game.
The severity of Nasirildeen’s injury was not known after the game.
The injuries to Nasirildeen only made the situation even more dire for the defense. FSU is already playing without defensive tackle Marvin Wilson as well as linebackers Jaiden Lars-Woodbey and Joshua Kaindoh due to season-ending injuries.
FSU is also playing without receivers Keyshawn Helton and Ontaria Wilson due to injury.
