FSU football: Impact of Tamorrion Terry injury on ‘Noles offense

FSU football continues to garner obstacle after obstacle to overcome. The latest is an injury to leading receiver Tamorrion Terry.

Mike Norvell and FSU football may have the worst luck of anyone I’ve seen in recent years. The coaching staff has had to deal with the weirdest offseason in history and another terrible start to the season with losses to Georgia Tech, Miami, and Notre Dame.

FSU wide receiver Tamorrion Terry didn’t play well in the first two games but was beginning to look like himself against Jacksonville State and Notre Dame.

The latter was his best overall game, hauling in tough catches, blocking well, and still showing he’s a deep threat vertically in the passing game.

However, according to a report by Noles247, Terry will undergo a procedure on his knee that could have him missing a few weeks.

I  noticed Terry limping after a couple of his receptions in the Notre Dame game, and it seems it’s been an issue he’s been dealing with for quite some time.

Terry’s the leading receiver for the Noles with 21 receptions for 275 yards and one touchdown.

Aside from his high school teammate, Ontaria Wilson, the production from the FSU receivers has been nearly invisible, with Keyshawn Helton and Warren Thompson combining for seven receptions and less than 100 yards receiving.

Those two will need to step up their games in Terry’s absence, and tight end Camren McDonald could see an uptick in his production. The latter has been solid so far, and this could also provide an opportunity for Jordan Young to emerge.

We could see more involvement in the passing game from the running backs as well. The absence of Terry will likely mean teams will look to stack the box more until FSU can prove they can threaten the field vertically in the passing game.
