Report: FSU tight end Jeremy Kerr off team with medical hardship

Jimbo Fisher Melina Vastola-USA TODAY Sports News broke on Sunday that Florida State tight end Jeremy Kerr has received a medical hardship and is no longer with the team entering what would have been his senior season, as first reported by Warchant.

The senior had just one career catch for one yard, but it was highly memorable. His one-yard touchdown catch in the Swamp in 2015 was the first touchdown scored in FSU’s 27-2 win over the Gators.

Kerr has not been consistently healthy since, dealing with an ongoing shoulder injury.

Kerr is the third player in the last week to leave the program, joining Keith Bryant and Sh’Mar Kilby Lane. If you are keeping track of the scholarship numbers , the Seminoles are now just one over the maximum number of 85 scholarship players.

Even with Kerr leaving, the Seminoles still have five scholarship tight ends. Of those five, two, Ryan Izzo and Mavin Saunders, were major contributors in 2016 and two are incoming freshmen in Tre’ McKitty and Alexander Marshall.
