Florida State’s quarterback, Jordan Travis, confirmed on Monday that the injury suffered during Saturday’s game against North Alabama will effectively end his college football career.

The senior leader of the undefeated Seminoles sustained a severe injury to his left leg after being tackled during the first quarter of the game. It was a gruesome injury, with Travis’ leg getting caught underneath a North Alabama defender at an awkward angle. Travis’ leg was quickly put in an air cast, and he was subsequently carted off the field and placed into an ambulance.

In a message posted by Florida State, Travis expressed his gratitude for the overwhelming support he has received since the incident.

“I truly cannot thank everyone enough for the many thoughts, prayers, and messages that have been sent my way. I have been overwhelmed by the support from my teammates, coaches, the Florida State community, and those around the world,” Travis wrote. “Although the injury I sustained on Nov. 18 marks the end of my Seminole playing career, the great memories created here at FSU will never fade. Being the quarterback at Florida State University has been a dream come true. I am humbled, honored, and forever grateful.”

Travis, a Florida native, initiated his college career at Louisville before transferring to FSU. He became the team’s starting quarterback in 2020 and has held that role ever since. Before the injury on Saturday, he had thrown for 2,755 yards and 20 touchdowns, with only two interceptions. He also rushed for seven touchdowns.

Although FSU was trailing North Alabama when the injury transpired, backup Tate Rodemaker led the Seminoles to a 58-13 victory. Tate threw for 217 yards and two touchdowns in his first significant action of the season and will now take over as the starter as FSU chases a national championship.

The Seminoles, ranked No. 4 in last week’s College Football Playoff rankings, improved to 11-0 with the win and will now head to Gainesville to face rival Florida in the regular season finale. After that, FSU will encounter No. 10 Louisville in the ACC title game.

If the Seminoles continue winning, they have a great chance of reaching the four-team playoff — even with Travis sidelined.

In his message, Travis urged his teammates to keep going even in his absence.

“The journey this team set out on is not over yet as all of our goals still lie just ahead,” Travis said. “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 has not disclosed the exact nature of his injury but posted an update from the hospital on Sunday.

“Just wanted to let you all know I’m doing good, feeling good,” he said. “I got a smile on my face. Just gonna follow God’s plan. God has a journey for me. I’m gonna trust Him every step of the way. I appreciate y’all for all the messages. Go Noles.”
