Florida State Seminoles quarterback Jordan Travis didn’t make the trip to Raleigh — meaning the only two scholarship quarterbacks available for FSU today are Chubba Purdy and Tate Rodemaker.

The school confirmed Travis didn’t make the trip.

Rodemaker started against Jacksonville State, replacing then now-transferring James Blackman, but was pulled in favor of Travis. Purdy saw his first game action against Louisville, then got extended action against Pittsburgh last week.

Head coach Mike Norvell spoke on Travis’ status on Wednesday.

“We will continue to evaluate how he progresses throughout the end of the week to coming up on Saturday. That is one of those things just like we’ve had earlier in the season, just kind of evaluate that day-by-day.”

“We’ll evaluate to see what all that looks like. Obviously Jordan’s status and where that is at. We’ve been through it.”
