TALLAHASSEE, Fla. -- Florida State running back Tavares Pressley, who injured his left knee in practice on Thursday, has a torn ACL and will miss the entire season, according to a statement from the school.

An MRI exam Friday morning confirmed the ACL tear.

Pressley, a junior college transfer, had to be carted off the field Thursday after he was injured.

The knee injury is the latest setback for Pressley. After transferring from El Camino (Calif.) Community College, academic issues kept him sidelined for more than a week at the start of Florida State's preseason camp.
