The Florida State Seminoles returned to the practice fields Friday afternoon after two consecutive practices were canceled due to a stomach virus spread to several members of the football team.
While the team was back to practice, several members were still absent - some of which likely due to the stomach virus - so there were some interesting looks on both sides of the ball.
The following players were not in attendance: Ryan Hoefeld, Jeremy Kerr, George Campbell, Chris Casher and Matthew Thomas.
These players were in attendance but were not in full pads and did not really participate: Nile Lawrence-Stample, Derrick Mitchell, Calvin Brewton, Ethan Frith (ankle wrapped), Kermit Whitfield and Ermon Lane.
Mario Pender was in full pads but was limited. Jonathan Vickers took reps as the second team running back.
Needless to say, I wouldn't flip your lid. Virus likley keeping a number of these guys away.
With Hoefeld out, Keith Weeks was taking reps as the starting center with Alec Eberle taking reps with the second team. Also, while Derrick Kelly had been taking reps as the first team right guard, Wilson Bell - who was expected at the position - was taking reps there on Friday. Kelly was taking his reps as the backup right tackle.
With Lawrence-Stample and Mitchell out, Derrick Nnadi and Keith Bryant assumed their positions on the first team defensive line.
Mavin Saunders took a few reps with the first team at tight end but spent most of his time as the backup with Jeremy Kerr out. Ryan Izzo ran with the starters.
Special teams spent time working on punt returns. Jalen Ramsey, Bobo Wilson and Travis Rudolph all shared time returning punts. All looked pretty consistent.
On hand were a number of former Seminoles, current recruits and 2015 signees that will be joining the team in the fall. Deondre Francois and Auden Tate were in attendance, as was Janarius Robinson. Jacobbi McDaniel, Mario Edwards Jr., Nick O'Leary, Kevin Haplea and Josue Matias were also there to take in practice.
Jimbo Fisher will speak to the media following practice and we'll bring you any updates.
