Former FSU Football Star Jordan Travis Shows Off Progress Ahead Of NFL Combine

The former Seminole has made impressive strides in his recovery from a season-ending injury.

Only 90 days have passed since former Florida State quarterback Jordan Travis suffered a devastating leg injury that prematurely closed the chapter on his college career. It probably feels a lot longer to some Seminole fans with the highs and lows that have transpired since then.

The unfortunate moment came at the worst possible time on the calendar for Travis. Not only did it prevent him from participating in the ACC Championship and postseason, but it also put his preparation for the NFL Combine and 2024 Draft into limbo.

The veteran quarterback has slowly been making strides over the last couple of months. Travis is at the point where he’s able to attack the rehab process without wearing a boot on his injured foot. It’s a positive sign that he’s already putting his left ankle through an intensive workout and being able to ride a stationary bike.

Travis is continuing to move in the right direction. The latest progress comes just weeks after he was spotted in a walking boot at the East-West Shrine Bowl. He wasn’t able to participate in the exhibition but he stuck around to support his former teammates and meet with scouts and reporters in Dallas.

At the time, Travis spoke with Steelers Depot where he confirmed that he spoke with representatives from Pittsburgh while also stating that he hopes to be close to 100% by May. It remains to be seen how much he’s able to do at the upcoming NFL Combine but he should be back on the field this summer with whatever franchise decides to select him.

The Florida native is coming off a record-setting career at Florida State and is a quarterback who will be remembered in Tallahassee forever. Travis ended his time with the Seminoles as the all-time leader in total touchdowns (98), total yards of offense (10,665 yards), rushing yards by a QB (1,950) yards, and QB rushing touchdowns (31). He’s the only player in program history to be ranked in the top 10 on the Seminoles’ career passing touchdowns and rushing touchdowns lists.

Travis finishes his time in garnet and gold with 28 victories as the starting quarterback, tied for No. 2 on the all-time list with Chris Rix. He guided the Seminoles to back-to-back double-digit win campaigns for the first time since 2015-16 and helped the program climb out of one of the worst stretches in FSU history.

During his college career, Travis appeared in 49 games, with 38 starts, and completed 637/1,027 passes for 8,715 yards with 66 touchdowns to 20 interceptions. He also rushed 417 times for 1,950 yards with 31 more scores while adding three catches for 11 yards and a touchdown.
