FSU Backup QB Jacob Coker Out After Injuring Meniscus


Jacob Coker is out indefinitely after injuring his meniscus against Wake Forest on Saturday. The redshirt sophomore QB will have surgery on his knee tomorrow and there is currently no timetable for his return.

Sean Maguire will take over as the Seminoles' backup quarterback.

Coker had battled Jameis Winston -- who has gone on to become a Heisman contender -- through last Spring and Summer but was beaten out by the redshirt freshman a couple weeks before the start of the season.

On the year Coker was 18/36 for 250 yards and a pick through seven games. Those numbers are a bit misleading though. Coker played with the Seminoles' second unit, behind a young offensive line comprised of true freshmen and walk-ons and surrounded by underclassmen at the skill positions. 

Maguire -- another redshirt freshman -- has played in give games, going 1/2 for 11 yards.

He has been remarkably unimpressive this year. I find it hard to believe the qb battle was close


You are nuts. Coker has a cannon. And his is mobile too. When he comes into games FSU is usually up by 48 and the team only throws short throws or they run the ball. All with 2nd and 3rd stringers. If Winston leaves early next season Coker will be ready. Hopefully he can come back before bowl season.

Having talked to Jimbo, Sean McGuire is a stud and has an NFL arm and body! The NOLES also have committed the QB from Booker T Washington High School (#1) in nation for next year and the #1 QB out of Jersey. No Worries!!


Heard Coker was planning on a transfer since JABOO has exploded at FSU ... Wish the kid well & a great recovery
