Florida freshman quarterback Chuba Farty, which started last Saturday for the Seminoles against State of NC, is made for the season, head coach Mike Norwell announced on Wednesday.
“We will announce that Chubba Purdy will actually be out for the rest of the season,”
The call signal at 6 feet 2,212 kilograms from Queen Creek, Arizona is again dealing with problems related to pre-season clavicle injury. Purdy broke his collarbone during the FSU’s first bout in August. It requires surgery and a subsequent small cleaning procedure that keeps it aside until mid-October. He has now undergone a third injury procedure, which has led to his suspension until the end of the season. Norvel added that he fully expects Purdy for spring football.
“Chuba will absolutely be ready to go,” Norwell said of the spring. “We had a plan and realized that the process of removing the hardware would take place. Due to some of the irritation and inflammation around this hardware, we had to speed it up. Absolutely, it will be ready to go. It’s just a pity that the schedule just isn’t fast enough to bring it back before the end of the season. Don’t worry about something moving forward and we will definitely have it for spring when this spring practice begins. “
With the release of Purdy FSU, there are only two fellows available in the future – a red shirt for the second year Jordan Travis and a true freshman Tate Rodemaker. Travis, who missed the NC State game due to a concussion, is expected to be available on Saturday against Clemson. Rodemaker is also available and is playing with relief last Saturday.
Fellow quarterback, red shirt junior James Blackman, left the team before the NC State game. FSU started four different quarterbacks this season.
Purdy has appeared in each of FSU’s last three games. He had one start to the season. He was 27-for-53 (50.9%) for 219 passing yards, two passing touchdowns and an interception. He also had 19 runs for 57 yards.
