Well, this sounds like a scary situation. Florida State offensive lineman Chad Mavety is out indefinitely for the entirety of spring football due to what head coach Jimbo Fisher called a ‘cardiac issue.’ Fisher addressed Mavety and his condition after one of the first media availabilities of the spring football season on Thursday evening.

“He has a cardiac issue that we are having to evaluate,” Fisher said via the Palm Beach Post. “Nothing he can control or anybody can control. Something we found.”

Mavety, who will be a senior this season,  missed several games last season dealing with a concussion. He had a significant role in the offensive linemen rotation before getting injured — he started in eight games including five at left guard and three at right tackle.

Other players out for all of spring include quarterback Sean Maguire, who broke his foot during the Chick-Fil-A Bowl game against Houston, offensive lineman Abdul Bello with a knee injury, center Ryan Hoefeld with a shoulder injury, and right tackle Derrick Kelly and receiver Da’Vante Phillips.
