Derwin James suffered a meniscus tear in Florida State’s win over Charleston Southern on Saturday, and it looks like the injury will cost him significant time. According to Florida State head coach Jimbo Fisher, James is expected to miss five-to-seven weeks with the injury.

James is one of — if not the — best safety in college football. The five-to-seven week time frame puts the Oct. 29 game against Clemson in danger. That will likely be the biggest game of the year for Florida State, and it won’t be good for the Seminoles if James is out for the game.

As it is now, James is definitely missing Saturday’s game against Louisville, which could also prove to be big. Louisville is riding high after a couple of blowouts to start the season, and not having James to disrupt Louisville quarterback Lamar Jackson could be costly.
