It's far too early to panic, but this wasn't the news Florida State fans wanted to hear with the start of the college football season right around the corner:
The extent of his injury is still unclear, but Manuel has been plagued by injuries during his career as a Seminole.
In 2011, his first year as a starter, he dealt with a separated shoulder in his non-throwing arm, which caused him to miss parts of three games, as well as a broken leg he suffered in the Champions Bowl.
Nevertheless, the 6'5 245 QB quietly put together an impressive season for Jimbo Fisher: throwing for 2,666 yards and 18 TD's on 8 INT's while completing 65.5% of his passes.
As a fifth-year senior, many expect him to emerge as a star and lead the Seminoles back to national relevance. Holding him out of the scrimmage may be nothing more than a precautionary move, but it's a situation that Florida State fans will be watching very closely.
