TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) -Florida State defensive tackle Emmanuel Dunbar was taken by ambulance to a hospital after suffering a back injury Wednesday in practice.
The redshirt junior has a history of back problems, including a 2006 surgery to repair two herniated disks.
Team officials had to cut Dunbar's jersey and shoulder pads off Wednesday to load him into the ambulance.
``You hate to see that happen to anybody,'' Florida State coach Bobby Bowden said. ``And you don't know the extent of it, so it scares you when the ambulance comes. We know he's in good hands.''
A Florida State spokesman said doctors were examining Dunbar on Wednesday night and his status for Seminoles' season opener against Western Carolina on Sept. 6 was uncertain.
Dunbar played in three games last season, and was expected to start the first three games this year while two other Seminoles defensive tackles serve academic misconduct suspensions.
