Coach Willie Taggart said during his weekly news conference Monday that he told Robinson to take all the time he needs with his family.
Robinson posted pictures to social media that showed the devastation, saying he had lost his home in the storm.
“Janarius, he’s a great young man,” Taggart said. “Everything you look for in a student-athlete. … He’s helping his mom and trying to help them get things in order … When he’s ready to come back, he’s ready to come back.”
Hurricane Michael came ashore in the Florida Panhandle last week, devastating many coastal and inland areas, including Panama City Beach and Panama City.

Florida State was on a bye last week, and players were allowed to return home during the time off. Robinson drove to Panama City after the storm hit.
A redshirt sophomore, Robinson has played in all six games as a reserve, notching 11 tackles. Although Robinson is away from the team, Taggart expects him to be available for Florida State’s game Saturday against Wake Forest.
