It doesn’t look like Florida State will have Jacques Patrick back for their game against Syracuse on Saturday. But it looks like the junior running back won’t have to wait much longer after that to return to the gridiron.
During his weekly radio show on Wednesday evening, Seminoles coach Jimbo Fisher provided an update on Patrick’s status, stating that it is a possibility that Patrick will play when the team takes on Clemson on November 11.
Fisher says he doesn't expect Patrick to play this week, but he could play next week. #FSU

Regardless of whether or not Patrick plays against the Tigers, this shows that he has made tremendous strides over the past few weeks.
After a knee injury suffered against Louisville threatened to see him sidelined for a good part of this season, if not the remainder of it, the Orlando Sentinel reported earlier that Patrick had been medically cleared. However, from his comments on Wednesday, it appears that Fisher is not looking to take a chance and will wait at least another week before letting Patrick back onto the field.
In 6 games this season, Patrick has recorded 434 yards and a touchdown on 76 carries. He has also made 13 catches for 88 yards.
Florida State and Syracuse meet on Saturday at 12:20pm ET in Tallahassee, Fla. The game will be seen on the ACC Network.
