TALLAHASSEE, FLORIDA (CBS SPORTS) – It would appear that Florida State’s worst fears have been realized. Quarterback Deondre Francois is indeed out for the season with a patella tendon injury, according to the Tallahassee Democrat and Sports Illustrated’s Bruce Feldman.
Francois is expected to have surgery on his knee on Tuesday, according to the paper.
Francois, a redshirt sophomore, had his leg rolled up on while he was being sacked during the fourth quarter of Florida State’s 24-7 loss to Alabama on Saturday in Atlanta.
Francois stayed on the ground clutching his left knee and had to be helped off the field. He was put into an air cast on the Florida State sideline and carted off the field.
Alabama safety Ronnie Harrison, who sacked Francois on the play, already took to Twitter to wish Francois a speedy recovery.
