Seminoles_Matthew_Thomas_2013TALLAHASSEE — Former Booker T. Washington linebacker Matthew Thomas will miss the rest of the season after sustaining a shoulder injury.

“He’s done, he’s going to have surgery,” coach Jimbo Fisher said Tuesday afternoon. “He’s got to have surgery and get that fixed.”

Thomas made news last summer when — after signing a national letter of intent to play at Florida State in February — he asked to be released from his commitment in order to play somewhere else. But he was persuaded to stay, and saw playing time as a true freshman, making four tackles, two tackles for loss and a sack.
