ACC leading rusher Cook day-to-day for No. 12 Florida State
TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) Florida State begins preparations for Saturday’s game against in-state rival Miami with three key starters nursing injuries.
Running back Dalvin Cook, who leads the Atlantic Coast Conference in rushing, is day-to-day with a strained left hamstring. The sophomore had a 94-yard touchdown run on his first carry in last Saturday’s 24-16 win over Wake Forest, then injured his hamstring on a screen pass later in the quarter.
If Cook is unable to play, Johnathan Vickers would get most of the carries.
Safety Nate Andrews will be out 2-3 weeks due to a bone bruise in his left leg with Derwin James moving into the starting spot. Linebacker Terence Smith is also day-to-day with a right ankle.
The 12th-ranked Seminoles (4-0, 2-0 ACC) have a five-game win streak against Miami (3-1).
