It was not the evening Florida State quarterback Deondre Francois had hoped for, and things got worse with just minutes remaining in the game. With a little over five minutes left, Francois was tackled by Alabama and immediately grabbed his knee.
Francois was able to get up but was not able to put weight on his leg. Francois is just a freshman but has already endured a number of viscous hits. The Seminoles offensive line struggled in 2016, and Francois took a beating.
While Florida State has not released the details of his injury, he is unlikely to return in the game.
