Defensive back Jarvis Brownlee won’t be playing today for Florida State Seminoles football, according to his Twitter.
It’s unclear as to why at this time, but he was seen on the field for warmups.
Brownlee had been receiving plenty of compliments throughout camp, establishing himself as a name-to-know heading into the season. The redshirt freshman had earned a spot on the intial two-deep depth chart of the season for Florida State, appearing as No. 2 alongside Carlos Becker Jr. behind Asante Samuel Jr.

From a few weeks ago:
Brownlee has been a name that has popped up multiple times this pre-season. He’s forced multiple turnovers and gotten a lot of praise from coaches. For him, it’s all been about consistency and technique. He said, “Just staying consistent with my technique. I’m just going to keep working and stacking good days.”
Brownlee came in as a three-star and the 546th ranked prospect in the country. He said he’s always felt underrated and that he’s ready to prove people wrong. “Honestly I’ve had a chip on my shoulder since I was little. I’ve always been underrated, so I’m ready to show who I really am.”
During pregame warmups, neither Demorie Tate nor Meiko Dotson were dressed out, leaving FSU a bit thin in secondary for the season opener, and meaning that the versatility of redshirt freshman Travis Jay and sophomore Akeem Dent might have to come into play.
