Seminoles Lose Jones

November 05, 2002

Florida State's Greg Jones, the leading rusher in the Atlantic Coast Conference, will miss the rest of the season because of a torn ligament in his right knee.

An MRI exam Monday showed that Jones tore the anterior cruciate ligament and injured the medial collateral ligament during the Seminoles' victory over Wake Forest on Saturday, team trainer Randy Oravetz said.

The 240-pound junior tailback had 938 yards rushing and eight touchdowns.

"It's such a shame, he was having such a good year," Coach Bobby Bowden said.

Washington State cornerback Jason David underwent surgery to repair the cheekbone broken last week when he was punched in the locker room by teammate Ira Davis.

Davis, a linebacker, will be suspended until David can return to play, Cougar Coach Mike Price said.

"When Jason plays, Ira will play," Price said.

In addition, Davis must take part in an anger management program and comply with other unspecified conditions set by Price.

Wisconsin running back Anthony Davis was released from a hospital, one day after being stabbed in the left thigh during a domestic dispute.... Virginia Tech tailback Kevin Jones is doubtful for Saturday's game against Syracuse because of a strained left hamstring.... Former Nebraska running back Thunder Collins, who quit the team three weeks ago, pleaded guilty in Lincoln to disturbing the peace as part of an agreement with prosecutors to drop charges for fighting with his girlfriend. Collins could face up to a $500 fine and six months in jail.
