Florida State QB Maguire leaves Peach Bowl with injured leg

ATLANTA (AP) Florida State quarterback Sean Maguire is back calling signals in the Peach Bowl after being carted off the field with a lower left leg injury earlier in the game against Houston.

Maguire left the game late in the first quarter and returned midway through the second quarter.

The injury left the Seminoles with J.J. Cosentino, who had been third-string most of the season, at quarterback. The Seminoles were without quarterback Everett Golson, who is away from the team for personal reasons.

Maguire was hurt when hit by Houston linebacker Matthew Adams after throwing an incomplete pass from the Cougars 8. Maguire couldn't put pressure on his left leg as he was supported by trainers before leaving the field on a cart.
