FSU will be without starting free safety Tyler Hunter for the remainder of the season, coach Jimbo Fisher announced Tuesday.

“He had to have surgery today on a bulging disk in his neck,” Fisher said. “He will be out for the season, and we expect him to make a full recovery and be back next year. He’s capable of redshirting.”

Hunter was injured against Bethune-Cookman and missed the next two games as he sought other opinions and treatment options. He finishes the season with eight tackles, two passes broken up and an interception he returned 27 yards.

True freshman Jalen Ramsey has started in Hunter’s place.

“He is very mature, very intelligent,” Fisher said of Ramsey. “He can contain and process a lot of information.”
