Three weeks ago, FSU  figured running back Jacques Patrick would miss the rest of the season with a knee injury.  Coach Jimbo Fisher said that Patrick had torn cartilage and would need several months to recover from surgery. 

Turns out, that's not the case at all. 

Fisher said during his weekly appearance on the ACC coaches' teleconference that Patrick's injury wasn't as bad as previously diagnosed, adding that the running back has been practicing and is ready for Saturday's game at Clemson.

"He's had good practices and looks well, and he should be able to go," Fisher said, via the Tallahassee Democrat.
