FSU To Move Forward Without Brandon Jenkins

The Florida State Seminoles held their first practice without Brandon Jenkins on Tuesday, after the star defensive end was lost for the season with a left foot injury against Murray State on Saturday.

Bud Elliot of SB Nation's Tomahawk Nation reported the Seminoles were having a tough time moving past the injury:

FSU coach Jimbo Fisher said Jenkins was clearly shaken by the injury.

"That's one of the things in this world that's not fair, because he is everything that's right about college football," said Fisher. "He wanted to come back and be a first-round draft pick, lead the team to a national championship, finish his degree and do all the right things."

Jenkins has 21.5 sacks in his career at Florida State. He will be replaced in the starting lineup by Cornellius Carradine, who posted 5.5 sacks in 2011. The team was going about its business as normal at Tuesday's practice, and showed good effort despite the tough situation.
