The Seminoles’ nightmare September got even worse today with injury news regarding running back Khalan Laborn.Laborn, a former five-star recruit, injured his knee in the win over Samford on Sept. 8. He had surgery last week, and originally, it was thought he might be able to return at some point this fall.However, that won’t be the case. FSU head coach Willie Taggart announced tonight that Laborn is out for the season.Laborn dislocated his kneecap on the kick return when he got injured, and apparently the injury was worse than it appeared at first.Willie Taggart updates status of Khalan Laborn to say that he’s out for the season. He had surgery last Friday and they found out injury was more severe than anticipated.— Curt Weiler (@CurtMWeiler) September 17, 2018An explosive athlete, Laborn was a five-star prospect in the 2017 class. He redshirted last season, but was expected to contribute heavily this year.In his lone offensive touch of the season, Laborn turned a short reception against Virginia Tech into a 37-yard gain. He also returned three kicks for 64 yards.You couldn’t have drawn up a worse beginning of the season for Florida State. There is already a GoFundMe to replace Willie Taggart, who is in his first season in Tallahassee.The Seminoles will look to get back in the win column when they host Northern Illinois this Saturday.last_img
