JIMBO FISHER UPDATE:

**Fisher said Terrance Smith suffered a cut on the knee and needs a few days to heel after getting stitched up. Said he should be good to go on Saturday.

**Austin Barron has looked good, according to Fisher, and should be ready to go. Wants to continue evaluating his progress, but says he has heeled surprisingly fast. Fisher seemed pretty excited about it and said that the doctors have cleared him to play, but wouldn't go as far as saying Barron would start.

**Fisher also said Dalvin Cook should be good to go and back in pads on Wednesday.

**Roberto Aguayo is missing due to scheduled rest, according to Fisher.

The Florida State Seminoles returned to the practice fields Tuesday afternoon to continue preparation for their trip to Miami this weekend.

LB Terrance Smith and K Roberto Aguayo were not at practice. Smith was at Monday's practice with a knee bandaged. Aguayo also missed Monday.

Dalvin Cook, Tyler Hunter and Arthur Williams were again not dressed out Tuesday after missing Monday. Cook spent time running laps and actually appeared comfortable while doing do. Hunter ran hand drills with the receivers and doesn't give me any reason to believe he won't play -- just getting much needed rest, I would assume.

Mario Pender looked as comfortable as I've seen him in weeks, running drills with precision and ease. I watched him quite a bit and he didn't seem to favor an ankle, not even once. I'm excited to see him go this weekend.

Austin Barron took full-contact reps today -- more than he took on Monday. It looks like they're easing him into to it to see how he feels the day after. He snapped the ball, got off the line and did quite a bit of bag work. Ryan Hoefeld, who we didn't see take any reps Monday, was back taking reps on Tuesday. Cam Erving continued some cross training at center as well.

Without Aguayo, Jonathan Hernandez continued to kick the field goals for FSU.

Jimbo Fisher will speak following Tuesday's practice, and he'll clear up some of the question marks.
