Derwin James out for season; could return for bowl game


It has been a disappointing season for Florida State safety Derwin James.

After earning All-American honors as a true freshman and establishing himself as one of the top defensive back prospects in the entire country, his sophomore campaign has been hindered from a torn meniscus in Week 2.

James has not played since the injury and this week it was announced the defensive back will miss the remainder of the regular season.

“He is shut down,” head coach Jimabo Fisher said this week, via the Orlando Sentinel. “He’s rehabbing. … It’s just a piece of cartilage that they are trying to make sure [stays] sewed and he keeps in there.”

The good news for James is that there is a possibility he could suit up for the team’s bowl game.

Florida State returns to action by hosting Boston College in Tallahassee. Kickoff is set for 7:30 p.m. ET on ESPN2.
