Former Atlantic star, FSU DE Bryant out for season with foot injury


Florida State defensive end Keith Bryant likely will require season-ending foot surgery, coach Jimbo Fisher said on his weekly call-in show Wednesday night.

The former Delray Beach Atlantic star suffered the injury in the last three days, Fisher said. Bryant had foot surgery in the offseason and missed all of spring drills, but he returned in August and was practicing well.

Fisher said Bryant would have surgery in the next week.

A redshirt junior, Bryant played in three games the last two years. He had his biggest impact in a November win over Chattanooga, recording four tackles, including a tackle for loss. Bryant was expected to back up preseason All-American DeMarcus Walker in 2016.
