After their first two-a-day of the 2015 season on Tuesday, the Florida State football team returned to practice on Wednesday, with scouts from the Jaguars and Dolphins in attendance as well as FSU president John Thrasher, and transfer linebacker Lorenzo Phillips participated in his first practice as a Seminole, albeit it in a limited capacity sporting a blue non-contact jersey.
Derrick Kelly and Corey Martinez were working with the 1s again at right tackle and center respectively. Deondre Francois continued his up and down injury status as he was without walking boot in today's practice and participated after wearing it yesterday and going without it this past Sunday.
Lorenzo Phillips participated in fall camp for the first time since transferring to FSU but was limited, as he wore pads from only the waist up and was in a no-contact jersey. Reggie Northrup participated again as did Marcus Lewis, who wore a wrap on his right knee, and Sh'Mar Kilby-Lane, who wore a no-contact jersey for the second straight day. Lamarcus Brutus seemed to be working on his ball skills as he was running routes and making catches with the wide receivers.
Bobo Wilson, Travis Rudolph, Kermit Whitfield, and Nyqwan Murray were returning punts in no particular order with Marquez White, who was with those four shagging punts at Sunday's open practice, no longer with the return team.
Many injuries carried over from yesterday with a few new injuries as well. Receiver George Campbell and offensive linemen Ethan Frith and David Robbins all missed practice for the second straight day with unspecified head injuries. Ryan Hoefeld wore braces on both knees and was limited, working mainly on individual drills. Justin Shanks was held out again and Tarvarus McFadden remained out with a tweaked hamstring. Chris Casher was absent from practice and Jimbo Fisher said that he has an MCL tear and will be getting a scope done soon, which will cause him to miss a few weeks to a month at least. Lorenzo Featherston was watching from the sidelines and wearing a wrap around his left knee. Fisher confirmed after practice that he is having a knee scope done and should miss about a week and a half of action, returning with 10-12 days before FSU's opening game. Calvin Brewton was also watching from the sidelines with an unknown injury.
The Seminoles' next practice will be tomorrow afternoon but it is closed to the media.
