‘Noles lose Helton, Fagan to injuries

CLEMSON, S.C. – Florida State lost receiver Keyshawn Helton and safety Cyrus Fagan in the first half of Saturday’s game at Clemson.

Helton suffered a left knee injury late in the second quarter as he tried to run down Clemson’s Chad Smith following an interception. His leg was put in an air cast and he was taken off the field on a cart.

The sophomore receiver, who has 17 catches for 239 yards, was hit low as James Blackman was trying to make the tackle.

“Unfortunately, Keyshawn hurt his knee and he will probably be out for the season,” coach Willie Taggart said after Saturday’s game.

Fagan suffered an undisclosed injury in the first half. He was helped off the field by two trainers and did not return to the game.

FSU was already playing without edge rusher Joshua Kaindoh and Jaiden Lars-Woodbey due to leg injuries. The Seminoles were without Janarius Robinson as he served a first-half ejection due to a targeting call in the second half of FSU’s win over NC State.
