The Florida State Seminoles sent the Miami (Florida) Hurricanes to their first loss of the season.

But that loss will not affect them, as much as the loss that they’ve suffered on the field. Sophomore running back Duke Johnson has been rules out for the rest of the season.

Johnson suffered a broken right ankle in the game. He will have surgery on his ankle this upcoming week.

While he has been ruled out for the rest of the regular season, there’s a chance that the Hurricanes could get Johnson back for a Bowl Game. But that will be determined after surgery takes place.

His ankle was twisted at the bottom of a pile after a rush. ESPN, who was broadcasting the game on ABC, said that Johnson initially had an ankle sprain.

But that initial diagnosis was wrong. And it wasn’t determined how bad his ankle injury was until after further testing.

Johnson seemed like he was getting dinged up every week through the Canes undefeated streak that ended on Saturday night.

This season, he has carried the ball a 122 times for 823 rushing yards and six touchdowns.

He came into the game averaging 2.9 yards per carry against four ranked teams, before the Canes faced the Seminoles. He is one of the top running backs in the country, as well.

When Johnson left a game against North Carolina earlier this season, he was replaced by Dallas Crawford. But with Johnson out, Crawford and Eduardo Clements will be called on to replace Johnson, as much as they physically can.
