There are plenty of players out there who will play through some fairly serious injuries. Hell, Deshaun Watson is supposed to be a potential top-10 pick and he played through a torn ACL against South Carolina in his freshman season. Of course, most people would not advise that, but there was another great player in the country who played with a fairly severe injury this year.
Florida State coach Jimbo Fisher revealed that star cornerback Tarvarus McFadden played the entire year with an injury in his shoulder.
McFadden tied for most interceptions in the country this past season with eight, which is also the second-most in a season in FSU history. He was named to the All-ACC First Team and was named to the first team of the All-American team by the FWAA and Phil Steele. Right now he won’t be playing spring ball, but coach Fisher did not make it sound like it was terribly serious as of now.
