Florida State Football Practice Report: 9/17

Melina Vastola-USA TODAY Sports

The Noles took to the practice fields Tuesday afternoon in anticipation of their game against Bethune-Cookman.

Jimbo 6:30 Update:

Wilson Bell does not have an ACL tear.  Jimbo says it looks like an MCL and Bell could miss 4-6 weeks. Also, with the timing, a medical redshirt is still possible with Bell, but Jimbo wanted to wait and see how it plays out.

Tre' Jackson took a lot of snaps today and is coming along nicely, according to Jimbo. Says Jackson still has some soreness in his foot but didn't think that would slow him down.

Austin Barron has to take a class, so he'll be missing Tuesday's from here on out.


The Florida State Seminoles entered the indoor practice facility on Tuesday with Warrick Dunn - one of the Seminole greats - in attendance. It was hot, but the Noles didn't seem to lack the sense of determination that has characterized this group throughout fall camp and into the beginning of the season. They unexpectedly started early, but I was able to notice a number of things.

Tre Jackson was back dressed out and running with the first team.

Wilson Bell and Mario Edwards Jr. were not dressed out today.

Austin Barron was not at practice today, from what I saw.

Bryan Stork, however, was back at practice today, along with Christian Jones. Stork still seemed a little limited, although completely dressed out. He spent time on the stationary.

They worked quite a bit on getting Kermit Whitfield and Jesus Wilson in at kick returner. It was mostly one of them along side Karlos Williams. Lamarcus Joyner was also taking reps, but as Jimbo has said many times, he knows what certain guys can do, so it's all about getting reps to the others.

The defense was working on the 4-2-5 set a lot on Tuesday. They have looked pretty comfortable running this set.

There were NFL scouts from the St. Louis Rams and the Chicago Bears.  They were spending a lot of time watching the offensive line.

Warrick Dunn was hanging around practice today, as well.

We'll get to speak with Jimbo after practice and I'll bring you any updates.
