According to ESPN, Florida State defensive end Brandon Jenkins will miss the rest of the 2012 season with a foot injury.
Jenkins left Saturday’s game in the first half after a teammate stepped on his left foot. Trainers worked with Jenkins on the sideline, and he was able to walk to the locker room under his own power.
After the game, coach Jimbo Fisher said the foot was swollen and bruised, but X-rays had come back negative. Fisher said Monday the team was planning an MRI, which apparently revealed further damage.
Jenkins was a preseason All-ACC selection and on the watch lists for the Bednarik, Camp and Nagurski awards after leading the Seminoles in sacks each of the past two seasons. He nearly left FSU after the 2011 season to enter the NFL draft, where he was widely projected as a potential first-round pick.
Jenkins recorded his first sack of the season in the first quarter against Murray State, moving him to within just 2½ sacks of third place all-time in school history.
