Florida State safety Derwin James suffered torn knee cartilage in the Seminoles' win over Charleston Southern on Saturday, and was scheduled for surgery Monday, FSU coach Jimbo Fisher said.
"Derwin has torn cartilage in his knee. He did not have any ACL or structural damage whatsoever. He has some cartilage damage which we'll go in and see ... don't know how long (he'll be out)," Fisher said at a news conference. "That's all going to depend on surgery."
Pressed on how long James might be unavailable to the Seminoles, Fisher suggested a wide range on his return.
"I don't know until they do the surgery. It could be anywhere from two weeks to six weeks probably ... I don't know," he said.
James was carted off the field Saturday after suffering the injury in a rout of Charleston Southern and did not return.
