TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WCTV) -- At best, you could call the Florida State offensive line a work in progress. At worst, at least on Saturday, some might say it's an abomination.
Fans hoped to see improvement from last season, but against Virginia Tech, it was anything but. In the season opener, FSU allowed five sacks and 14 tackles for loss.
To add insult to injury, right tackle Landon Dickerson is dealing with a sprained ankle and, according to head coach Willie Taggart, his chances of playing against Samford aren't great.
"You never know, we're going to see," Taggart said. "He had an ankle injury and we don't know how he's going to respond to it. Big guys respond a little differently than smaller guys when it comes to ankles.
"There's a chance we will move our offensive line around and make sure we've got the best five in there to help us win this ball game," Taggart continued.
The Athletic's Tashan Reed broke down what the FSU offensive line is slated to look like Saturday.
