FSU practice report: Injury updates on Dalvin Cook, Nate Andrews

News, notes, and observations from the day's Florida State practice.

Post-practice update: Jimbo Fisher said that Dalvin Cook, who participated in practice today, will be a game-time decision while Nate Andrews will be active for the Miami game and is listed as questionable. Fisher also confirmed that Terrance Smith will be out against the Hurricanes and announced that although he will still be inactive on Saturday, Mario Pender was released from the hospital yesterday and lost 18 pounds during the course of his stay.

In their final session open to the media before Saturday night's showdown with the Miami Hurricanes, the Seminoles resumed practice this afternoon in Tallahassee. FSU may have some key players healing up for the big game.


The big news on offense is that star running back Dalvin Cook dressed out today. He worked out individually at first but then joined the running backs when they came together for position drills.

There was a shake-up on the offensive line today, As Chad Mavety was working with the ones at left guard, along with other first-teamers Rod Johnson, Ryan Hoefeld, Wilson Bell, and Derrick Kelly. Frosh Cole Minshew was finally back after a concussion, and he backed up Mavety, along with Keith Weeks, Alec Eberle, Corey Martinez, and Brock Ruble (left to right).


Junior defensive back Nate Andrews returned to practice as well, sporting a brace on his left knee and without the club on his right arm and hand.

Special Teams

For the second straight day, frosh corner Tarvarus McFadden got reps as a deep man on the second-team kick return team, opposite Jesus Wilson.


Fisher announced last night that linebacker Terrance Smith would not be ready for this weekend's game after suffering an ankle injury, and he did not participate once again. Left guard Kareem Are was also not present.

Up Next

Fisher will deliver his injury sport after FSU concludes practice, so check back for that right here, probably around 6:45 pm. Tomorrow's practice, as always, is closed.
