Florida State defensive end Lorenzo Featherston has had trouble staying healthy since high school, and that injury trouble has followed him to Florida State. The Seminole coaching staff had high hopes for him, but Featherston has dealt with shoulder, back, and knee injuries during his Florida State career. Now a knee injury has put his career in jeopardy of being cut short.
"Knee," Fisher said after practice Wednesday. "Failed his physical. I don't know if he will be able to come back. It will be interesting to see. We'll have to see... We knew it and it's been bothering him pretty bad. We're going to evaluate it and see."
Featherston played in just 4 games as a sophomore and recorded just 2 tackles and .5 tackles for loss. He played in 11 games with 19 tackles and 5 tackles for loss. He started three games that year, and was named a College Football News Honorable Mention Freshman All-American.
