FSU safety Tyler Hunter to miss Boston College game

Safety Tyler Hunter will miss Florida State's game against Boston College on Saturday.

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. -- Starting safety Tyler Hunter will miss Florida State's game at Boston College on Saturday with a neck injury.

Florida State coach Jimbo Fisher said he is not sure about the severity of Hunter's injury. The junior was hurt in the first half of Saturday's rout of Bethune-Cookman.

When asked if Hunter's injury could be long-term, Fisher said, "It could be. I couldn't answer that question."

Hunter started the first three games this season for No. 8 Florida State (3-0), making eight tackles, breaking up two passes and recording an interception in the opener against Pittsburgh.

Fisher said that Jalen Ramsey would start in Hunter's place for Florida State against Boston College on Saturday at 3:30 p.m. Ramsey, a true freshman, played both corner and safety in high school.

Florida State also announced that offensive lineman Ira Denson (shoulder) is out. And defensive end Mario Edwards (hand) is probable after having surgery last week and missing the Bethune game.
