FSU QB Sean Maguire To Miss Four Weeks

Florida State quarterback Sean Maguire will undergo surgery for the second time this year.

Florida State quarterback Sean Maguire will miss at least four weeks with a broken bone in his right foot. Florida State head coach Jimbo Fisher announced the injury in a previously unscheduled media session.

"He's got, on the other foot, the outside bone in his foot, they've got to put a screw in," Fisher said. "Same injury Derwin [James] had. So about four weeks. He'll be back by the second or third game of the year."

Maguire hurt his foot on the second day of practice, but it really started affecting him during practice on Friday.

"Second day of practice," Fisher said. "He felt something funny, and then yesterday it bothered him toward the end of practice. We had him looked at, and it's a slight break. It's that wee little bone on the outside of your foot." 

With Maguire missing at least the Ole Miss game, Jimbo Fisher did everything but name redshirt freshman Deondre Francois the starting quarterback. Francois took the majority of the first team reps during the spring while Maguire recovered from a broken ankle he suffered during the Peach Bowl.

"Right now I ain't named a starter," Fisher said. "Right now [Francois] is going with the ones."

Fisher was asked if he was comfortable with Francois being the starter during the session.

"He was co-starting as the number one going in so I must feel pretty good about him," Fisher said.
