During the Peach Bowl on December 31 just over a week ago, the Florida State Seminoles started Sean Maguire at quarterback after Everett Golson didn’t make the trip to Atlanta. Near the end of the first quarter of the game, Maguire landed awkwardly on his foot and he left the game with an apparent ankle injury.
He came back later in the second quarter and seemed to be just fine. However, we learned on Saturday that he suffered a rather serious injury as it was reported that Maguire was playing on a fractured ankle after that odd landing.

The injury seemed to affect Maguire some in the game as he threw four interceptions as the Seminoles fell to the Houston Cougars, 38-24. Luckily for the Seminoles, Maguire has plenty of time to recover as he is expected to have surgery soon and should be back in time for spring practices.
He will compete with J.J. Consentino, Deondre Francois, and Malik Henry for the starting job in 2016.
