BleacherReport Florida State’s worst fears were realized Sunday. The injury to quarterback Deondre Francois is reportedly set to cost him the full 2017 season. According to Jim Henry of the Tallahassee Democrat, the sophomore suffered a patella tendon injury and will undergo surgery on Tuesday. He was injured in the fourth quarter of Saturday’s 24-7 loss to Alabama.
The opening weekend of college football could not have gone any worse for Florida State, take the worst scenario imaginable, and that’s what happened to FSU. Not only did the Seminoles get beat down 24- l7 by Alabama in their much anticipated showdown, but their Heisman hopeful star quarterback Deondre Francois suffered a serous knee injury, and it has been confirmed that he will miss the remainder of the 2017 season. FSU fans went from being confident that they were going to beat Alabama, their first step towards the National Championship, to the harsh realization that 2017 may be a lost season without their offensive star Deondre Francois unless a young unproven quarterback can step up and keep the team respectable.
