Jacques Patrick could return in 2017 after minor knee surgery

Florida State got some tough news earlier this week when it was announced that starting running back Jacques Patrick would most likely miss the rest of the season with a knee injury. The junior underwent surgery on Tuesday to repair torn cartilage in his knee and that’s when things started to get interesting.

Patrick was reportedly spotting walking around on FSU’s campus without the aid of crutches less than 24 hours after he went under the knife. He then posted a snapshot of the Seminoles schedule, circling the matchup with Clemson on November 11. Patrick posted a message on Twitter last night, possibly hinting at his return.

“Surgery yesterday was a success! God works in mysterious ways. He always has a plan. I’ll be back sooner rather than later.”

The junior has amassed career-highs in carries and yards thus far in 2017. He has recorded 76 carries for 434 yards (5.7 YPC) and one score in his first season as the starting running back for the `Noles.
