Florida State running back Jacques Patrick was supposed to miss 4-6 months with a knee injury. That's what the doctors told him after an MRI on the Sunday following FSU's 31-28 loss to Louisville. "I thought it was a sprain," Patrick said. "They went in and got an MRI on it. On the Sunday of Boston College week they told me it was over. It was a real tough moment for me at that time. I’d never been through anything like that." The worst part is that he didn't even know he was injured until after the game. "It was really devastating for me at the time," Patrick said. "To have the game taken away. I didn’t even know I was hurt. That was the craziest things. There was a play that I felt like something happened, but I was still running fine." But two weeks later, Patrick is back at practice and will be full go for this Saturday's tilt at Clemson according to FSU head coach Jimbo Fisher. "He's had good practices and looks well, and he should be able to go," Fisher said during his weekly appearance on the ACC teleconference. The injury wasn't as bad as the initial diagnosis said it was, and it turns out that Patrick had been playing with the injury for a while. Florida State defensive end Josh Sweat experienced the same injury a season ago, and was also able to make a quick recovery.
