The Daily Nole — Sept. 11, 2016: Derwin James Leaves Early with Injury

Jeff Romance/FSU athletics

It’s been 15 years since the tragedy that took place in New York City in which 3,000 people were killed in the terror attacks on the World Trade Center. Try to keep that in mind as you enjoy your day with your family. Below is what is going on in the Florida State athletic realm. This post will be updated throughout the day:

Lead Story

Florida State had no problem with Charleston Southern on Saturday in its home opener as the Seminoles won 52-8, but in the third quarter, there was a scare.

Sophomore safety Derwin James left the game with an apparent left knee injury after making a tackle on the Charleston Southern sideline and would not return. James was named the ACC’s Defensive Back of the Week for his performance against Ole Miss and his status for the remainder of the season is a huge concern.

James will have an MRI to see the extent of the damage. The loss of the sophomore from Haines City would serve as a huge blow to a very talented FSU defense.

Between the Lines

Aside from FSU’s 52-8 rout of Charleston Southern, the Florida State men’s golf team finished Day 1 of the Rod Myers Invitational in the middle of the pack. Among 14 teams, FSU currently ranks seventh at 12 strokes back of leader Wake Forest.

On the Agenda

FSU’s men’s golf team will resume play in Durham. The soccer team will also be in action at home against Troy. The match begins at 4 p.m.

News and Notes

Florida State moved up one spot to No. 2 in both the AP and Amway Coaches Poll. Alabama tops both polls.
