The Florida State Seminoles are facing a lot of uncertainty at wide receiver entering their first season in new coach Willie Taggart’s offense and things got even more tumultuous when leading returning receiver Nyqwan Murray went down with an injury earlier this week.
Murray suffered an apparent left leg injury on Tuesday during a drill and had to be shut down for the rest of the day. He hasn’t returned to practice since and Taggart announced on Friday morning that he wouldn’t be practicing for the remainder of spring, according to a report from WarChant.com.
Over the course of the last two seasons, Murray has caught 67 passes for 1,045 yards and 9 touchdowns. He’s both the most experienced and the most dynamic returning wide receiver in the offense this spring, so having him on the practice field to learn this new offense and lead a young group would have been a huge benefit.
Instead, the former 3-star recruit will have to hope he’s healthy by the time the summer rolls around and camp opens up in hopes that he doesn’t fall by the wayside when Taggart’s first freshman class arrives in full. And several of the other younger veteran wide receivers on the Florida State roster will have to take advantage of the additional reps to form a more well-rounded unit this fall.
