For now, Florida State fans will have to hold their breath when it comes to the status of star safety Derwin James. That puts a sour note on the Seminoles’ 52-8 win over an extremely under-manned Charleston Southern.
James sustained an apparent knee injury in the third quarter of the win. After sitting with trainers on the sideline, James was taken off the field in a cart. Florida State announced later that James would not return to the game.
However, there is no official word on the extent of the injury.
Jimbo on Derwin James: “we don’t know what extent is. We’ll have to see.”

James entered the 2016 season as one of the best players in college football. An All-ACC and All-American selection as a freshman, James led the team with eight tackles heading into Week 2 and had a pick against Ole Miss.
