The FSU football program are having a hard time winning games with their second string quarterback. If they have to go even further down the depth chart, they might as well close up shop for the rest of the year.
Early reports indicate that Seminoles quarterback James Blackman is fine, but it didn’t look like it after the conclusion of the game against Louisville.
While scrambling outside of the pocket on the final play, Blackman was slammed to the ground and his errant throw ended the game.
Blackmon stayed down for a long time afterwards.

Blackman eventually got up and walked off the field under his own power.
The freshman signal-caller appeared to be favoring his throwing arm, and the video shows him keeping it relatively stiff as he works his way off the turf.
"(James Blackman) is fine." He got hit hard on that final play of the game. #FSU

Coach Jimbo Fisher says that his quarterback was okay, and that he just took a hard hit. Fortunately it was on the last play of the game and he’ll have a full week to recover and work off whatever might have happened on that play.
