Florida State RB Thompson out for remainder of season after knee injury
TALLAHASSEE, Fla. -- Florida State running back Chris Thompson is out for the rest of the season after injuring his left knee in the Seminoles' win against Miami (Fla.) on Saturday. The school made the announcement Monday.
Thompson was the 11th-ranked Seminoles' leading rusher. He hurt his knee in the second quarter at Miami after making a 32-yard reception.
Thompson also missed much of last season with two broken vertebrae, and said he feared that back injury would end his career.
He had 47 yards on seven carries Saturday night, giving him a team-best 687 yards for the season. He also has 248 receiving yards.
