Florida State TE Nick O'Leary to miss the rest of spring after a second motorcycle accident

Florida State coach Jimbo Fisher said TE Nick O'Leary would miss the rest of spring practice after being involved in a motorcycle accident.

It's O'Leary's second motorcycle accident in less than a year.

Tomahawk Nation first reported the news of O'Leary's second accident Tuesday. The site said O'Leary was on a dirt bike and suffered a severe road rash from the accident. reported O'Leary, the grandson of golfer Jack Nicklaus, had mostly bumps and bruises and a swollen ankle.

"He's fine, just skinned up," Fisher said after practice Wednesday. "He just wrecked a motorcycle again. Skin and a swollen ankle. He can't practice but he'll be fine."

Florida State's spring game is April 12, so O'Leary will miss less than two weeks of practice.

In May 2013, O'Leary walked away from this dramatic crash and didn't miss any time during Florida State's national championship season.

O'Leary had 33 catches for 557 yards and seven touchdowns in 2013.

The guess is here that O'Leary won't be getting on a bike again anytime soon. Or if he does, he'll be careful and going slowly. If Fisher had his way, O'Leary would be making sure it wouldn't happen again.

"I can be frustrated, he needs to be frustrated," Fisher said. "It's not important if I'm frustrated. What's important is that he's frustrated with it and learns his lesson."
