TALLAHASSEE, Fla. -The seventh ranked Florida State Seminoles suffered a big blow Monday on the news defensive end Brandon Jenkins will miss the remainder of the 2012 season. Jenkins suffered a left foot injury in the Seminoles 69-3 victory over Murray State on Saturday.
"After receiving information late in the afternoon following an MRI and a weight bearing X-Ray and also awaiting to talk to Brandon Jenkins and his mother, it was determined that Brandon will miss the 2012 season with a Lisfranc injury," Fisher said.
Jenkins was a vital part of a Florida State defense that ranked number one in the Atlantic Coast Conference in sacks last season. In the past two years the senior racked up 21.5 sacks.
"Brandon is not only a tremendous player, but a great person, teammate and leader that we will miss. I know he'll bounce back and recover to continue a great career."
According to NFL scouts, Jenkins was projected to be a first round caliber talent for the upcoming 2013 draft.
