Florida State to be without its quarterback for spring football

Sean Maguire's ankle was heavily taped through the majority of the Peach Bowl loss to Houston on Dec. 31.

Florida State will have to go through spring football without its starting quarterback, thanks to some bad news announced on Saturday. The Tallahassee Democrat confirmed that redshirt junior quarterback Sean Maguire suffered a fracture in his left ankle during Florida State's 38-24 loss to Houston in the Chick-Fil-A Peach Bowl on Dec. 31. Maguire was carted off the field on the first quarter of the game after taking a shot, but would return with his ankle heavily taped.

Maguire will have surgery on the ankle next week, and he is "not expected" to participate in spring practice according to the Tallahassee Democrat. The 'Noles will have to look towards freshman Deondre Francois and sophomore J.J. Cosentino moving forward with Maguire's absence.
