TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – Florida State head football coach Jimbo Fisher has announced that senior defensive end Brandon Jenkins will miss the 2012 season after a Lisfranc injury to his left foot following Saturday nights game against Murray State.
Early in the first half of the game a teammate stepped on Jenkins foot causing him to leave the game. Trainers worked with him on the sidelines not long before he walked himself to the locker room.
“After receiving information late in the afternoon following an MRI and a weight bearing X-Ray and also awaiting to talk to Brandon Jenkins and his mother, it was determined that Brandon will miss the 2012 season with a Lisfranc injury,” Fisher said.
“Brandon is not only a tremendous player, but a great person, teammate and leader that we will miss. I know he’ll bounce back and recover to continue a great career.”
Florida State will practice Tuesday and Fisher will be available following practice.
