State of Florida National championship hopes took a huge hit Monday as quarterback Jordan Travis revealed the injury he suffered against North Alabama would mark the end of his playing career with the Seminoles.
Travis suffered a leg injury in the first half against North Alabama. He was tackled after a scrum and his leg got stuck under a defender. He was then placed on a cart with an air jet on his left leg.
On Monday, he provided a grim update.
“Although the injury I suffered on November 18, 2023 marks the end of my Seminole playing career, the great memories created here at FSU will never fade,” he said in a statement posted on the football team social media. “Being a quarterback here at Florida State University is a dream come true.

“I am humbled, honored and eternally grateful. The journey this team has embarked on is not yet over as all of our goals are still right. I am excited to stand alongside my brothers every day as we continue our attack. We “That’s all we have, we’re all we need. The work is not finished. Go Noles! “
Travis will likely recover from his injury and enter the NFL draft. He’s not expected to be a top pick as USC quarterback Caleb Williams and North Carolina quarterback Drake Maye are expected to be the first players at the position taken off the board.
Travis was a Heisman Trophy contender before his injury. He had 2,756 passing yards and 20 touchdowns before he was injured Saturday.
Florida State won the game to improve to 11-0, but was left out of the top four in the latest Associated Press Top 25 college football poll. The team faces Florida this weekend, then faces Louisville in the ACC Championship.
