The Seminoles kicked off Miami week today, sporting shells on a cool, windy day in Tallahassee. Hurricane flags flew over practice (pictured) as a reminder that the 'Canes are coming to town for a Saturday night showdown.


Ryan Hoefeld leapt from third to first on the center depth chart after starting on Saturday, and he again worked with the ones (Rod Johnson, Kareem Are, Wilson Bell, and Derrick Kelly). The twos remain Keith Weeks, Corey Martinez, Alec Eberle, Chad Mavety, and Brock Ruble, left to right. Nyqwan Murray began practicing without the first two fingers on his left hand taped up, but shortly thereafter sought out a trainer to get some tape. Johnathan Vickers took the initial running back reps.


Sh'Mar Kilby-Lane assumed Terrance Smith's spot at the front of a column for stretching, with the latter sidelined. Other than the Smith and Nate Andrews injuries, the defense remains quite healthy, and Lorenzo Featherston looks ready for the Miami game.

Special Teams

The deep men on kick return remain the same (Jalen Ramsey and Kermit Whitfield). FSU again worked on adjusting for short kickoffs.


As expected, Dalvin Cook sat out with a tweaked hamstring, while Smith (ankle) and Nate Andrews (knee) also missed time after injuries sustained against Wake Forest. Smith wore a walking boot, and Andrews is on crutches. Freshman Cole Minshew is still out after suffering a concussion-- he was doing some light jogging in the IPF.

Up Next

FSU will suit up again tomorrow to practice in the afternoon.
