Injury again prematurely ends FSU guard Landon Dickerson's season

College Football, Florida State Seminoles

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. -- Florida State's Landon Dickerson has had his football season cut short for the second straight year.

Coach Jimbo Fisher said Thursday that the sophomore left guard would have surgery on his right ankle Friday. He was injured during the Seminoles' 24-20 loss to No. 11 Miami on Oct. 7.

Dickerson, who had started in the Seminoles' first four games, started seven games last season before suffering a knee injury and missing the final five.

Derrick Kelly will move to left guard, and redshirt freshman Josh Ball will take over Kelly's spot at left tackle.

Dickerson isn't the only starter the Seminoles (1-3, 1-2 Atlantic Coast Conference) will be without Saturday at Duke (4-2, 1-2). Wide receiver Keith Gavin (leg), safety Trey Marshall (concussion) and linebacker Jacob Pugh (concussion) also are sidelined.
