Keyontae Johnson's medical condition took a turn for the worse after he collapsed on the court during a game at FSU on Saturday.
Johnson collapsed as he returned to the court after a timeout. He appeared to trip and fell face first at mid court.
The 21-year-old was taken off the court on a stretcher and rushed to Tallahassee Memorial Hospital where he was listed in critical condition, according to ESPN.
Johnson's grandfather provided an update on his grandson's condition in a telephone interview with USA TODAY Sports on Monday.
Larry DeJarnett said doctors placed Johnson in a medically-induced coma and they hoped to bring him out of a coma by Monday afternoon.
"They're just not sure. He may have had activity in the brain, so they induced the coma. They put him on medication to keep him sedated."
Johnson, the SEC's preseason player of the year, tested positive for Covid-19 earlier in the year. Coach Mike White said the team paused activities last month after several other players tested positive for the flu-like virus.
"Please keep praying for @Keyontae and his family. We all love him," Coach White tweeted on Saturday.
