Florida State safety Terrence Brooks out today vs. Wake Forest


Florida State Seminoles’ starting safety Terrence Brooks will be out today when the ‘Noles go one the road to take on the Wake Forest Demon Deacons in an ACC contest.

 

Brooks suffered a concussion last weekend in the big win over the then seventh-ranked Miami Hurricanes. He left the game and didn’t return. However, he was able to record an interception of ‘Canes quarterback Stephen Morris before he went down.

This isn’t a bad move by any means as Florida State has a lot of depth in the secondary and should be able to handle Wake easily. After Stanford’s upset of Oregon on Thursday night, the ‘Noles are in the driver’s seat for a trip to Pasadena and the national championship game.

Brooks is a pivotal part of that starting group back there and FSU will need all of their players as healthy as possible as they gear up for a possible showdown with Alabama down the road.
