Travis: FSU career is over, but ‘job’s not finished’

Florida State quarterback Jordan Travis on Monday confirmed that he is out for the season after sustaining a lower left leg injury against North Alabama last Saturday.

Travis thanked everyone in a social media post on Monday for their thoughts and prayers since the injury. He was tackled at the end of a run and his left leg bent awkwardly underneath him. Trainers rushed to the field immediately, and he was carted off with an air cast on his left leg and taken to the hospital.

Travis remained hospitalized over the weekend, according to his Instagram story posts. In one video clip, he showed his room filled with teammates who came to visit.

“I have been overwhelmed by the support from my teammates, coaches, the Florida State community and those all around the world,” Travis wrote in his statement. “Although the injury … marks the end of my Seminole playing career, the great memories created here at FSU will never fade.

“Being the quarterback here at Florida State University has been a dream come true. I am humbled, honored and forever grateful. The journey this team set out on is not over yet as all of our goals still lie just ahead. I am excited to be by my brothers’ sides every day as we continue our attack. We’re all we got, we’re all we need. Job’s not finished. Go Noles!”

Travis, who grew up in West Palm Beach as a Seminoles fan, transferred to Florida State in 2019 after beginning his career at Louisville. He emerged as the starting quarterback midway through the 2021 season after nearly walking away from the game.

He has helped bring Florida State back to the top echelon of college football.

Florida State has won 16 straight games and clinched a spot in the ACC championship game against Louisville on Dec. 2. He ends his career as the only player in school history ranked in top 10 on FSU’s career passing touchdowns and rushing touchdowns lists.

The Seminoles (11-0, 8-0 ACC), who were No. 4 in last week’s CFP rankings but fell to No. 5 in the latest AP Top 25, visit rival Florida on Saturday.
