TALLAHASSEE (CBSMiami/AP) – The Florida State Seminoles will be without one of the three players who have spear-headed the team’s three-headed rushing attack this season.

Coach Jimbo Fisher said Thursday that running back James Wilder, Jr. will be on the sidelines when the Noles play North Carolina State on Saturday due to a concussion.

Wilder suffered the concussion during FSU’s 51-14 thrashing of Clemson last weekend. He’s considered day-to-day on the injury report.

With Wilder out, Karlos Williams will back up starter Devonta Freeman when the Wolfpack come to Doak Campbell Stadium on Saturday.

Wilder, also slowed by a shoulder injury, has run for 231 yards and two touchdowns on 41 carries for Florida State (6-0, 4-0 Atlantic Coast Conference).
