No. 12 Florida State lost leading rusher Chris Thompson to a left knee injury in the second quarter of its game at Miami on Saturday night. Thompson was injured with 12:44 left in the period, on a play where he made a 32-yard reception. He remained down on the turf after the tackle, then was helped to the sideline for further evaluation. The Seminoles said he would not return. Thompson missed much of last season with two broken vertebrae, and said he feared that back injury would end his career. He had 47 yards on seven carries Saturday night, giving him a team-best 687 yards for the season. He also has 248 receiving yards, including 47 more in the Miami game before getting hurt.
