Florida State’s Jacob Coker injures meniscus


Miami Herald Writer

Florida State backup quarterback Jacob Coker is out indefinitely after injuring his meniscus against Wake Forest on Saturday. The redshirt sophomore will undergo surgery Tuesday, but the timetable for his return is still undetermined, coach Jimbo Fisher said.

Coker had battled Jameis Winston for the starting quarterback job in the spring and summer but was beat out by the redshirt sophomore a couple weeks before the start of the season.

Coker has completed 18 of 36 passes this season for 250 yards and an interception. Redshirt freshman Sean Maguire will replace Coker as the team’s backup.

Brooks is back

Senior safety Terrence Brooks — who missed last Saturday with the effects of a concussion — was back at practice Monday. Redshirt sophomore wide receiver Kelvin Benjamin was also back after leaving the Wake game early with concussion-like symptoms. Redshirt senior center Bryan Stork was limited as he works back from a foot injury that kept him out last Saturday.
