The Florida State Seminoles entered the practice facility Monday afternoon, battling sheets of heavy rain. And as the indoor facility has proven to be in the past, it was once again crucial, allowing head coach Jimbo Fisher and his staff to get practiced started without any hesitation.
Looks like they'll be practicing inside today, Noles. #FSU pic.twitter.com/ft2Li14VFA— Dustin Tackett (@dtackett_) September 15, 2014
Nile Lawrence-Stample and Justin Shanks were still not dressed, but they were there for Monday's practice. Shanks spent time on the stationary bike.
Eddie Goldman, after missing/utilizing the entire bye week last week, was back dressed out and participating. He found his way back on the defensive line alongside Derrick Mitchell.
Matthew Thomas and Markus Eligwe remain limited at practice, although they were both fully dressed out. Casher also saw limited reps during the walk through, with DeMarcus Walker taking those.
P.J. Williams and Ronald Darby were back and fully participating as well, as expected. They both spent time, during walk-throughs, at their rightful corner positions.
Cason Beatty spent more time punting during the open session than I can remember seeing in years. Most of this time was spent one-on-one with a strength and conditioning assistant, and looked to be working on fully extending his leg (and likely stretching). Beatty worked on rugby kick as well. Also, FSU confirmed with me that walk-on punter Brian Crews is on Florida State's roster, even though it doesn't show it on the University's website.
Fisher will not speak following Monday's practice, but the media should be able to talk to some players.
