Quarterback Jordan Travis’ Florida State career is over following the gruesome left leg injury he sustained Saturday against North Alabama, he announced on social media Monday.
“I truly cannot thank everyone enough for the many thoughts, prayers and messages that have been sent my way,” Travis said in a statement. “Although the injury I sustained on November 18, 2023, marks the end of my Seminoles playing career, the great memories created here at FSU will never fade. Being the quarterback here at Florida State University has been a dream come true.”

Travis exited Saturday’s game after getting injured on a run late in the first quarter. When crossing midfield, his left leg bent at an awkward angle under him when he was tackled. Travis stayed down on the field and his teammates took a knee as the medical staff rushed to the quarterback’s aid.
Travis left the field on a cart with an air cast on his leg as fans chanted “Jordan Travis.” The medical staff loaded him onto an ambulance immediately and took him to a hospital.
Florida State went on to beat North Alabama 58-13.
Travis finished his season with 2,756 yards, 20 touchdowns and two interceptions while leading the Seminoles to an 11-0 record.
After starting his collegiate career at Lousiville in 2018, Travis transferred to Florida State and played five seasons in Tallahassee. He’s recorded 8,644 yards, 65 touchdowns and 19 interceptions during his Seminoles career.
