The Florida State Seminoles entered the practice facility Tuesday afternoon to officially begin Clemson preparation. Following its win against The Citadel, where FSU suffered some injuries, Tuesday's practice had some interesting notes.
Eddie Goldman, Nile Lawrence-Stample and Justin Shanks were not at practice. P.J. Williams and Matthew Thomas were again not dressed, with Williams spending time on the stationary bike.
The Tennessee Titans and the St. Louis Rams had scouts present.
Markus Eligwe, who has been sidelined for quite some time now, was in full pads for the first time in what seems like forever. Both coaches and players were really fired up, busting his chops and congratulating him on his return to participation. While Eligwe was dressed, and for the first time, he still remained limited, as most would expect. But take this as a great sign.
Kain Daub was back in full pads and working with the scout team after reportedly breaking his toe.
With Goldman and Lawrence-Stample out, and after an impressive performance against The Citadel, Derrick Mitchell has assumed the role in the middle.
Lorenzo Featherston was taking reps on the edge opposite Mario Edwards Jr., while Demarcus Walker shadowed Edwards Jr. I asked Jimbo Fisher about Featherston after Saturday's game and he sounded very excited about the extremely long, athletic freshman. This is something I'll have to keep an eye on.
Chris Casher took reps at the SAM next to Terrance Smith. And with P.J. Williams out, Marquez White assumed that position.
Fisher will speak with the media following Tuesday's practice, as will a few players.
