On Monday, Florida State head coach Jimbo Fisher announced that backup QB Jacob Coker would be undergoing knee surgery following an injury suffered in the 59-3 win against Wake Forest on Saturday.
Tuesday, Coker underwent the procedure and Coach Fisher today said that he will now be out the rest of the way in 2013.
Jimbo says Coker had surgery today. And is out for rest of the year. Said he expects him back for spring.

With this news, third-string quarterback Sean Maguire will now move up to the backup slot behind redshirt freshman, and Heisman contender, Jameis Winston.
Also, in addition to the roster shakeup, this news also more than likely means that Saturday against Wake may have been the last time that we see Jacob Coker in a Seminoles’ uniform. It’s expected that, following the season and now with some rehab, the redshirt sophomore will transfer to another FBS institution, which he’s free to do and play immediately as he will have graduated.
