Florida State starting S Tyler Hunter (neck) out against Boston College
Tyler Hunter suffered a nick contusion in the first quarter against Bethune-Cookman. He will miss the Seminoles upcoming game at Boston College.
Hunter, previously considered day-to-day with a neck contusion, is officially out of the lineup for the game against the Eagles. Seminoles coach Jimbo Fisher did not reveal any details regarding the severity of Hunter's injury, passing off questions to the medical staff.
Hunter started each of the Seminoles first three games, recording eight tackles and an interception. Starting freshman cornerback Jalen Ramsey has been working at safety this week and will slide over to Hunter's starting spot for Saturday's game. Reserve cornerback Nick Waisome, a starter for 14 games in 2012, will likely see more action at his old position and Ramsey is expected to have some help from reserve safety Keelin Smith.
Florida State's secondary shuffle has been ongoing since spring practice, but when you consider how much Jeremy Pruitt's new defensive scheme relies on versatility the changes seem like less of an issue.
As for this weekend, Boston College quarterback Chase Rettig has struggled passing the ball against Florida State. He enters the game 0-3 as a starter averaging just 97.7 yards passing per game in the losses.
