Florida State quarterback Jordan Travis was carted off the field in the first quarter of the Seminoles’ game against North Alabama on Saturday. He sustained a severe leg injury.
Travis was in Heisman talks throughout the 2023 season as he led Florida State to a 10-0 record coming into Week 12. A sixth-year senior, he has been in Tallahassee since 2018, playing one year at Louisville before transferring.
In 2023 Travis passed for 20 touchdowns and rushed for seven scores. The West Palm Beach native threw just two interceptions as he led the Seminoles to wins over Duke, LSU, Clemson, and Miami so far this season.
The injury is pretty gruesome, so you might not want to watch below.

Travis appears to have broken his leg or ankle. His backup, who will likely play the remainder of the game against North Alabama, is Tate Rodemaker. The redshirt junior has passed for three TDs this season, and has 22 career games in Tallahassee, including several starts before being relegated to the bench earlier in his career.
