James Wilder Jr. is out this weekend. After suffering a concussion in the second quarter of Florida State's 51-14 win over Clemson last week, Wilder will not be active against NC State on Saturday.
"Wilder is going to be out. He was close. He was very close," said Jimbo Fisher on Thursday. "They really like it. That’s why they reexamined him today and thought there might be a chance but just a little close and you can’t risk those things.
Fisher said that Florida State would utilized Karlos Williams more in Wilder's absence.
“Karlos took a ton [of reps this], Ryan Green took [reps too] along with Devonta [Freeman] and [FB Chad] Abram and those guys and they did a great job," said Fisher. "I thought they had a really good week.”
