Florida State junior quarterback Deondre Francois suffered a left leg injury during Florida State's 24-7 loss to No. 1 Alabama on Saturday night.

Francois was holding his left knee and was helped off the field by the training staff without putting any weight on his leg. He was carted off to the locker room praying during the fourth quarter of the game and was seen with crutches and a knee brace on his left leg.

“I saw him, and I hugged him and told him I'm sorry he's hurt,” FSU coach Jimbo Fisher after the game via the Orlando Sentinel.

“We'll get the diagnosis, and I love him, and we'll figure out what we've got to do from here.”

The injury news on Sunday night is not good for Florida State as Francois is out for the season with a torn patella tendon and scheduled to have surgery as early as Tuesday.

Francois was 19-for-32 for 210 yards with one touchdown and two interceptions against the tough Alabama defense. Last season, he passed for 3,350 yards which were the most by an FBS freshman in 2016 and the fifth most in Florida State history according to ESPN Stats and Info.

The new starting quarterback for the Seminoles will more than likely be true freshman James Blackman.
