As if losing to Alabama (24-7) in the season opening Chick-Fil-A Kickoff Game wasn’t bad enough, the Florida State Seminoles are now without their starting QB for the year.

Florida State Seminoles quarterback Deondre Francois will miss the rest of the 2017 college football season after suffering a knee injury in the fourth quarter of FSU’s matchup against Alabama on Saturday September 2nd.

Francois’ injury means the Seminoles will be without their sophomore QB who passed for 3,350 yards with 20 passing touchdowns and 5 rushing touchdowns last season. Deondre Francois’ injury also leaves Florida State fans wondering what will become of the season that just a week ago seemed could lead them to a National Championship.

Deondre Francois had successful surgery to repair a torn patellar tendon in his left knee on Tuesday morning and all signs show everything went well. FSU head coach Jimbo Fisher believes Francois’ rehab process will be about 6-8 months and that Francois should be ready for the start of Spring Ball in the 2018 season.
