Sixth-ranked Florida State hasn't played its second game of the season yet and has already lost two key defensive players for the year. The team's defensive leader, senior pass rushing star Brandon Jenkins, suffered a season-ending broken foot in Florida State's 69-3 win over Murray State last weekend - just a month after senior cornerback and punt return specialist Greg Reid was kicked off the team. Coach Jimbo Fisher said Wednesday he's confident the Seminoles have enough talent to help offset the loss of the 6-3, 260-pound Jenkins. Senior Cornelius ''Tank'' Carradine moves into Jenkins' starting role Saturday against Savannah State while Atlantic Coast Conference defensive lineman of the week Bjoern Werner holds down the other starting end spot. Toshmon Stevens and Giorgio Newberry move into the top backup roles.
