Florida State Seminoles lose Ryan Green for spring practice

The running back position is going to be quite thin for the Florida State Seminoles for the last two weeks of spring practice.

On Monday, Seminoles’ head coach Jimbo Fisher announced that sophomore running back Ryan Green would be out for the rest of spring practice due to a shoulder injury.

The Seminoles have already lost Dalvin Cook. Cook, a 5-star prospect in the class of 2014,  enrolled early so that he could partake in spring practice, but fell up a set of stairs in the team’s weight room and landed awkwardly, injuring his labrum. Fisher announced that he would be out for all of spring practice two weeks ago.

Green was a highly touted prospect himself when he stepped on campus last year.

He was considered a 4-star prospect and was ranked as the second best all-purpose running back prospect, the 12th best overall prospect in the state of Florida and the 49th best overall prospect in the class of 2013, according to 24/7 Sports’ composite rankings.

Green rushed for 163 yards and a touchdown on 33 carries last season.

That leaves senior Karlos Williams and redshirt sophomore Mario Pender, who has never played in a game, as the only scholarship running backs currently available.
