Florida State’s worst fears have been realized. Far worse than Saturday night’s 24-7 loss to Alabama was the anxious feeling that the knee injury that knocked quarterback Deondre Francois from the game would cost him more than one doomed series. On Sunday, reports from the Tallahassee Democrat and ESPN stated Francois suffered a torn patella tendon and will be lost for the remainder of the season. ESPN reports Francois is set for surgery later this week. Francois would finish his season hitting 19-of-33 passes for 210 yards with a touchdown and two interceptions. He started the game single-handedly carrying FSU’s offense, putting the Seminoles on top with a touchdown pass to Auden Tate in the second quarter. But as Florida State failed to make Alabama respect its running game — 40 total yards on 27 carries — the Tide’s attack pinned its ears back and made life miserable for Francois, intercepting him in Florida State … [Read more...] about No. 3 Florida State reportedly loses QB Deondre Francois for the year to knee injury

SADIO MANE had a goal disallowed because VAR ruled his HIP was offside. Yet a nervous-looking Liverpool won by the skin of their teeth in an incredibly disjointed performance. Mo Salah’s scored a brilliant first half goal before he got the second with an even better, cheeky flick in the 90th minute. But you have to give Watford a hell of a lot of credit. They looked much better under new boss Nigel Pearson but wasted a lot of chances and then in the last 10 minutes, made the home team work for their three points before Salah’s latest moment of genius. Liverpool are now unbeaten in the Premier League for 34 games although you would never have thought 37 points separate these teams in what proved to be a fascinating yet ugly match. Jurgen Klopp made a few changes with James Milner and Joe Gomez coming into the defence and Xherdan Shaqiri starting in midfield.It was a big day for 18-year-old Neco Williams, who makes the Liverpool match day squad for the first time in the … [Read more...] about Liverpool 2 Watford 0: Reds survive scare as Mo Salah brace gets Liverpool over the line

K'Lavon Chaisson leaned against crutches inside LSU's indoor practice facility Tuesday afternoon, his left knee wrapped in white cloth and clamped with a brace.It's the type of medical equipment an athlete might be given to rehabilitate a torn ACL, although Tigers coach Ed Orgeron wouldn't confirm the exact injury Chaisson had suffered in LSU's 33-17 win over Miami on Sunday.All Orgeron would say was that one of the defense's most promising players was "out for the season," although a report from Sports Illustrated detailed that the 6-foot-4, 238-pound sophomore pass rusher had torn his ACL."I feel bad for (Chaisson)," Orgeron said at his weekly news conference.
