FSU’s Wilson and Travis Ready to Face Duke as No. 4 Seminoles Gear Up


Summary: No. 4 Florida State prepares for their upcoming game against 16th-ranked Duke with key offensive players, receiver Johnny Wilson and quarterback Jordan Travis, cleared to play. Wilson, who missed the previous game due to injury, has made progress in his recovery and is expected to contribute this week. Meanwhile, Travis injured his left hand during the last game but is deemed fit to play against the Blue Devils. The Seminoles, who are on a 12-game scoring streak of 30 or more points, aim to extend their winning streak to 13 games.

No. 4 Florida State is set to face 16th-ranked Duke in their next game with their offensive lineup nearly at full strength. According to coach Mike Norvell, receiver Johnny Wilson and quarterback Jordan Travis are both available for practice this week. Wilson, who missed the team’s previous victory over Syracuse, has shown significant progress in his recovery from an undisclosed injury. Norvell expressed confidence in Wilson’s readiness for the upcoming game, stating, ‘I feel very good about Johnny,’ and expects him to be fully involved throughout the week.

Wilson’s absence in the last game was notable after he left the Virginia Tech game due to being caught between two defenders. Prior to the injury, Wilson had recorded 20 receptions for 357 yards and two touchdowns against the Hokies.

Travis, on the other hand, injured his left hand just before halftime of the last game but managed to return to the field in the second half. Norvell assured that Travis, who holds the program record for 87 offensive touchdowns, will be fit to play against the Blue Devils.

These positive developments come at a crucial time for Florida State (6-0, 4-0 Atlantic Coast Conference), as they aim to continue their 12-game streak of scoring 30 or more points and secure a 13th consecutive victory. However, Duke (5-1, 2-0) also faces uncertainties with quarterback Riley Leonard’s ankle injury. In addition, Norvell mentioned that offensive tackles Bless Harris and Darius Washington are making progress. Harris is set to return against Duke after missing the past two games, while Washington is recovering from an undisclosed injury that forced him out of the Syracuse game.

Norvell expressed optimism about Washington’s availability, stating, ‘I think he’ll have a good chance (to play).’
