FSU's Austin Barron to miss 3-4 weeks with foot injury

Florida State offensive lineman Austin Barron will be out 3-4 weeks with a break in his left foot.

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. -- Florida State junior offensive lineman Austin Barron has a small break in his left foot and will miss 3-4 weeks of practice, coach Jimbo Fisher said Friday night.

Fisher said a pin will be inserted in the foot and that Barron may be able to play in time for FSU's opener on Labor Day at Pittsburgh.

"He was playing really well, too," Fisher said. "He just came in and said his foot was sore."

Barron has played in 18 career games, including three starts in 2011.
