Deondre Francois undergoes successful Tuesday surgery

Florida State quarterback Deondre Francois underwent successful surgery on his injured left patellar tendon on Tuesday. The sophomore quarterback completed 19-33 passes for 210 yards with one touchdown and two interceptions before going down in the fourth quarter against Alabama. True freshman James Blackman will make his first start against UL-Monroe on Saturday. According to a source, the kickoff time for that game has been changed from 7 p.m. to noon.

Francois posted a message to Instagram after the surgery. The typical recovery time from a patellar tendon surgery is 5-7 months. Head coach Jimbo Fisher has hopes of Francois having an opportunity to participate in spring ball.

“Surgery today was a success! Thank you so much to everyone who sent their thoughts, prayers and support. The power of prayer is amazing and I appreciate it more than you know! It seems terrible right now but God is teaching me a valuable lesson about life and I know this is all apart of his plan. I love and miss my brothers and I know they’ll play for me and give it all they got. From the bottom of my heart 1️⃣2️⃣ will be back better than before… God willingly ??⏳
