Derwin James undergoes surgery on knee, could miss six weeks


The Florida State Seminoles defense has taken a devastating hit. Star safety Derwin James, who was injured during the team’s Week 2 win over Charleston Southern, underwent surgery on Monday.

According to head coach Jimbo Fisher, James underwent surgery to repair torn cartilege in his knee.

Fisher also noted James could miss up to six weeks.

For the sake of the Seminoles, let’s hope James’ recovery is closer to the two week mark than six weeks.

The injury comes at the worst possible time, with the Seminoles set to take on No. 10 Louisville and Heisman contender Lamar Jackson this weekend with clear implications in the ACC.

Florida State and Louisville are set to meet Saturday afternoon on ABC with a noon ET kickoff at Papa John’s Cardinal Stadium.
