The Florida State football team continued to take advantage of its bye week Wednesday, preparing for its first conference game of the season against Clemson on September 20th. With the injuries that occurred on the interior of FSU's defensive line, this bye week couldn't have come at a better time.
Eddie Goldman, Nile Lawrence-Stample, P.J. Williams and Justin Shanks were not at Wednesday's practice.
The New York Jets and the St. Louis Rams had scouts present.
Markus Eligwe and Matthew Thomas were both in full pads and participating. Eligwe seemed to handle the linebacker drills with ease and didn't appear to be limited. However, he was not included in the first team walk-throughs.
Brian Crews, the preferred walk-on punter from Lincoln High right here in Tallahassee, was at Wednesday's practice and in full pads. As I've stated before, we don't get to see the punters do very much during our time at practice, so I can't inform you on how many reps he took or how he looked, or if he even took any reps.
Ronald Darby was fully dressed but didn't participate during the walk-through. Nick Waisome and Marquez White continue to take those reps at the corner positions.
The offense continued to work with Jesus Wilson in the slot, while also incorporating some of the freshman receivers out wide.
Jimbo Fisher will not speak following Wednesday's practice.
