Update: Jimbo Fisher had plentiful amounts of good news when he relayed this week's official injury report, confirming that Dalvin Cook, Terrance Smith, Everett Golson, and, surprisingly, Mario Pender will all be available for the Clemson game. Lorenzo Featherston (knee), Cole Minshew (concussion), Derrick Kelly (knee), and Marcus Lewis (concussion) are the only four players who will be unavailable against the Tigers, with the obvious exception of the players with season-ending injuries.

The Seminoles practiced one last time in Tallahassee today prior to their road trip to Clemson to take on the top-ranked Tigers. FSU went in shells, as is the norm on Thursdays-- and actually got a little healthier today.


Offensive linemen Derrick Kelly and Cole Minshew remain sidelined, as was frosh DB Marcus Lewis.


Dalvin Cook practiced without a left ankle brace again, and looks to be in line to play against Clemson. Quarterback reps continue to be taken by Sean Maguire, then Everett Golson, then J.J. Cosentino. Kermit Whitfield did not take running back reps today, but Mario Pender was back, and the RB rotation went Cook, Pender, Patrick.

Left to right, the ones on the OL were Rod Johnson, Chad Mavety, Alec Eberle, Wilson Bell, and Brock Ruble. The twos consisted of Ethan Frith, Kareem Are, Ryan Hoefled, Joshua Peters (who sat out yesterday), and Keith Weeks.


Terrance Smith was a go once more--he's moving well, and it seems like he'll play on Saturday. Nile Lawrence-Stample's checkup for a concussion yesterday must have gone well, because he was back in action too, as was Lorenzo Featherston.

Special Teams

Pigg Harrsion and Travis Rudolph were the second-team kick returners.

Jimbo Fisher will speak with us after practice, and then FSU will head to the airport.
