FSU QB Deondre Francois Reportedly out for Season with Leg Injury

Florida State quarterback Deondre Francois will be out for the season after suffering a patellar tendon injury in his left knee, Francois' uncle, Pat Julmiste, told ESPN's Adam Rittenberg.

He was taken to a medical tent on FSU's sideline and emerged with a brace on his left leg and using a pair of crutches. Newton ran for 190 yards and two touchdowns and passed for 140 yards with a TD.

The Seminoles committed several errors with a good number coming on special teams.

The No. 3 Seminoles host Louisiana-Monroe in Tallahassee, Florida next week and No. 18 Miami the next week. It's a huge loss for the Seminoles as Francois had the potential to be one of the top quarterbacks in the country this year.

Francois folded his hands in prayer as he exited the field on a cart.

Without Francois, Florida States ability to accomplish the goal of winning a national championship this season is put into serious doubt.

Coach Jimbo Fisher is expected to have a further update, including when Francois will have surgery, during his weekly press conference Monday.

True freshmen James Blackman and Bailey Hockman would also potentially be options. Sep. Blackman replaced Francois in the game against Alabama.

FSU redshirt sophomore QB Deondre Francois (knee) is scheduled to undergo an MRI.
