MIAMI (CBSMiami) – The Florida State Seminoles will be without their top running back for the rest of the season. The school announced Monday that Chris Thompson will be out after injuring his left knee.

The injury came during FSU’s victory over Miami on Saturday. Thompson injured himself after making a 32-yard reception in the second quarter.

Thompson had been the feel good story of the Seminoles this season after coming back from suffering two broken vertebrae during a game last season.

Thompson had a team best 687 yards rushing and also had 248 receiving yards this season for the Seminoles.

His absence will open up carries for Devonta Freeman and James Wilder, Jr. along with Lonnie Pryor.
