He was prone on the turf in pain and was unable to put weight on the leg as he was helped off the field.
Despite not playing his best game against Alabama, Francois is one of the best young quarterbacks in college football. FSU lost an opening game for the first time in eight seasons under coach Jimbo Fisher. He finished the night 10-for-18 as a passer for 96 yards and a score, adding 55 as a rusher.
Francois was injured when he was tackled from behind on a scramble by Alabama safety Ronnie Harrison.
Nick Saban shared his thoughts in his post-game presser.
Alabama (1-0) limited the Seminoles (0-1) to just 65 total yards in the second half, including just 16 rushing yards on 14 second-half carries and kept Florida State on its own side of the field for almost all of final 30 minutes of action.
Harrison took to Twitter to offer his well wishes to Francois.
Francois threw for 210 yards, but had two costly interceptions that contributed to the Seminoles 24-7 loss to Alabama. Really. His most impactful play came when he hauled in a 53-yard touchdown deep from QB Jalen Hurts in the second quarter.
With the Tide still clinging to that three-point lead, the game was essentially decided by a seven-play sequence toward the end of the third quarter.
Florida State: The Seminoles were looking to regain a bit of their swagger after back-to-back 10-3 seasons, which would be a cause for celebration at most schools but not in Tallahassee. Florida State proceeded to lose two of its next three games, including a 63-20 drubbing at Louisville.
As Alabama's offense sputtered, the Tide's defense and special teams stepped up to deliver a two-touchdown lead.
After failing to find the end zone in the third quarter and settling for a field goal, Alabama caught a break when Florida State coughed up the kickoff return, setting them up for an 11-yard touchdown run from Damien Harris, with the two-point conversion to follow. Also on the roster are true freshman Bailey Hockman and walk-on freshman Jake Rizzo. Alabama cornerback Levi Wallace, who started his career as a walk-on, intercepted Francois to stop the Seminoles' chance at regaining the momentum. Even after a heartbreaking, last-second loss to Clemson in the national championship game, Saban and the Crimson Tide showed that they didn't lose a step during the offseason. Cosentino attempted nine passes last season.
Francois later was on crutches with a brace on the knee.
