In somewhat of surprise, FSU signal-caller Sean Maguire has returned to practice. There’s a possibility he may see some time in the Sep.5 season-opener against Ole Miss in Orlando.

Per ESPN, Maguire featured in both team and individual drills during Friday’s practice. The senior quarterback broke a bone in his foot two weeks ago. Head coach Jimbo Fisher initially diagnosed Maguire missing three-to-four weeks — which would’ve kept him out of the opener.

Though Maguire had a surgery to place a screw in his foot on Aug. 15, he appears primed to — at the very least — be available for the Seminoles against the Rebels.

Last year, Maguire accrued 11 touchdowns and 1,520 passing yards. He shared time with Everett Golson — before taking over the starting job for the last portion of the season.

As it currently stands, redshirt freshman Deondre Francois is slated to start. While he doesn’t possess much in the way of experience, Francois has a rocket arm-strength and immense athleticism.
