FSU TE O'Leary in another motorcycle crash

 

The Sports Network

Tallahassee, FL (SportsNetwork.com) - Florida State tight end Nick O'Leary was in another motorcycle accident and will miss spring practice with an injured ankle, Seminoles coach Jimbo Fisher said Wednesday.

"He's fine. He's just skinned up," Fisher told reporters. "He just wrecked a motorcycle again."

Last year, O'Leary was thrown from his motorcycle after slamming into a car that had pulled out in front of him. He walked away from the scene with only minor injuries. The scary accident was caught on video.

This time Fisher said O'Leary -- the grandson of Hall of Fame golfer Jack Nicklaus -- was "skinned from head to toe" and had a swollen and sore ankle.

"He can't practice, but he'll be fine," said Fisher. "I'm glad he's OK."

O'Leary, a 6-foot-3 senior, caught 33 passes last season for 557 yards and seven touchdowns.
