FSU QB Sean Maguire having surgery, out for season opener


If the Florida State Seminoles were confused about who would be their starting quarterback to open the season, it looks like they can put one possible starter off to the side. It was reported Saturday evening that Sean Maguire needed surgery on his ankle and he would miss at least the 2016 season opener.

Maguire injured his ankle in the Peach Bowl in late December when he jumped landed awkwardly on his feet. It was later stated that he had broken his ankle, which he continued to play on, and now, he needs a second surgery on his foot and will miss the opener against Ole Miss.

This opens the door for redshirt freshman Deondre Francois to take over the starting role at least for the first game of the season. The Seminoles will miss the experience of Maguire, who played eight games in 2015 and threw for 1,520 yards and 11 touchdowns.

The Seminoles face off against the Ole Miss Rebels on Sept. 5 at Camping World Stadium in Orlando, Florida.
