Jordan Travis Injury: Latest Updates on Florida State QB
Late in the first quarter of the Florida State Seminoles’ Week 12 game against North Alabama, Jordan Travis suffered what appeared to be a major left leg injury.
Down 13-0, Travis took an option run into open field and made his way past the first down marker. He was dragged from behind by defenders and kept churning forward, and as he redirected left to evade another defender, the first tackler’s hip dropped on his left leg and ankle.
Travis’ ankle was bent at an abnormal angle as he remained on the ground, and trainers soon attended to him. He was visibly in pain, and had to be taken off the field by a cart. Soon after, he was taken out of the stadium by an ambulance, presumably for further evaluation at a local hospital.

The injury occurred during Florida State’s senior day — the last home game of the 2023 campaign. And it’s a campaign along which Travis has distinguished himself as one of the best quarterbacks in college football.
In the 10 games leading up to this one, Travis had completed 205 of 320 passes (64.1%) for 2,735 yards, 20 touchdowns, and two interceptions while also running for 160 yards and seven scores.
Travis’ play has earned him consideration as a potential Heisman candidate, but his impact as a team leader for the Seminoles is even more distinct. Travis is one of the most storied passers ever to play at the program and saw incredible growth year-over-year.
Tate Rodemaker entered the game in relief of Travis, and is expected to close out the game with Travis undergoing further evaluation.
