TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) — Defensive tackle Marvin Wilson is expected to miss the rest of the season after sustaining a hand injury during the Seminoles' game against Miami.

Interim head coach Odell Haggins sent the following statement to ABC 27:

Wilson sustained a hand injury during last week’s game against Miami. After consulting with our athletic training staff and team physicians it was determined that surgery was the best course of action for Marvin. He had surgery earlier this week and is expected to miss the rest of this season. Marvin is disappointed, but he will remain involved as a captain and respected leader for our team.

FSU (4-5, 3-4 ACC) faces Boston College (5-4, 3-3 ACC) at noon on Saturday. The Noles need to win two of their final three games this season to become bowl eligible.

So far this season, the junior recorded 44 total tackles, five sacks, and one forced fumble.

In 2018, Wilson appeared in all 12 games with five starts while staking claim among best interior linemen in America. He recorded 42 tackles, including 4.5 for loss with 3.5 sacks, four quarterback hurries, two pass breakups and one forced fumble.
