Florida State QB Jordan Travis suffers serious leg injury in win over North Alabama


Florida State’s star quarterback Jordan Travis was carted off the field with a gruesome leg injury in the first quarter of the Seminoles’ 58-13 victory over North Alabama on Saturday. The injury occurred when Travis was tackled by North Alabama linebacker Jalen Choice, who used a hip drop technique that twisted Travis’ leg awkwardly. Travis was in agony as he lay on the ground, and his teammates and coaches surrounded him with concern.


Travis was having a stellar season for the Seminoles

Before the injury, Travis was leading the Seminoles to an undefeated season and a No. 4 ranking in the AP poll. He had completed 15 of 17 passes for 157 yards and two touchdowns in the first quarter against North Alabama, adding to his impressive stats for the year. Travis had thrown for 2,467 yards, 24 touchdowns, and only three interceptions, while also rushing for 687 yards and nine scores. He was considered a Heisman Trophy candidate and a potential first-round NFL draft pick.

The hip-drop technique is controversial and dangerous

The hip drop technique, also known as a leg whip, is a move that involves wrapping one leg around the opponent’s leg and using the hip to twist it. The technique is often used in martial arts, but it is also seen in football, especially by defensive players trying to bring down a ball carrier. However, the technique is controversial and dangerous, as it can cause serious injuries to the knee, ankle, or foot. The technique is illegal in the NFL, and it was also used to injure Baltimore Ravens tight end Mark Andrews in a game against the Miami Dolphins on Thursday.

Florida State rallied behind backup QB Tate Rodemaker

After Travis was taken to the locker room, backup quarterback Tate Rodemaker stepped in and led the Seminoles to a dominant win over North Alabama. Rodemaker completed 13 of 23 passes for 217 yards and two touchdowns, connecting with Keon Coleman and Caziah Holmes for scores. He also ran for 34 yards and a touchdown. The Seminoles improved to 11-0 on the season, extending their winning streak to 17 games. They will face rival Florida next week in their regular-season finale.

Travis’ status and prognosis are unknown

Florida State coach Mike Norvell did not provide any update on Travis’ condition after the game, saying he was still waiting for more information. He praised Travis for his leadership and performance, and said he was proud of how the team responded to the adversity. Travis was seen on crutches and with his left leg in a boot, but the extent of his injury and his recovery time are unknown. He will likely undergo further tests and evaluations to determine the severity of the damage and the best course of treatment.
