FSU vs. N.C. State: Zach Allen done, offensive line wracked with injury

Sam Sharpe-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

The three-year starter was being counted on to be one of the anchors of the Wolfpack offensive line in 2012.

The N.C. State Wolfpack will not have their full complement of offensive linemen when they host the No. 3 Florida State Seminoles this weekend:

Allen, a 6'3", 330-pound guard, is a three-year starter who was expected to help anchor the Wolfpack offensive line in 2012. He injured his lower leg in the Wolfpack's 44-37 loss to Miami last week, an injury that will now keep him off the field for the rest of the season.

He was being looked at as a prospect for the 2013 NFL Draft prior to the injury, but for now it's unclear whether Allen will pursue a medical redshirt or hope he has enough time to rehabilitate before the pre-draft season.

He was replaced in the starting lineup by sophomore guard Cameron Fordham, which only makes the challenge they have in front of them on Saturday greater.
