Scary Injury Discovered For Former FSU QB De'Andre Johnson

The former Florida State quarterback had a scary injury discovered.

Former Florida State quarterback De'Andre Johnson had surgery earlier this week for two blood clots in his arm.

The former top recruit, who's now a QB for Lane Kiffin at FAU, did not travel with his team to the game at Wisconsin.

From the Sun-Sentinel:

Johnson did not travel to Madison, Wis., for FAU’s 31-14 loss to No. 10 Wisconsin on Saturday and was still in the hospital on Monday, according to Owls coach Lane Kiffin. Kiffin did not say whether Johnson would play again this season.

“It was pretty scary,” Kiffin said.

After Saturday’s game, Kiffin said Johnson did not travel because of a medical condition, but did not elaborate on Johnson’s absence. Kiffin said the Owls planned on playing Johnson against the Badgers, but ultimately played only starter Daniel Parr.

Johnson, a top recruit coming out of high school, was kicked out of Florida State for punching a woman in a bar. He transferred to Last Chance U's East Mississippi Community College before moving on to FAU.
