Update: Jimbo Fisher confirmed the progress of Lorenzo Featherston after practice, stating that both he and Marcus Lewis could be back by the end of the week. Fisher said Chad Mavety can play both guard and tackle but has been working primarily at the former.
The 3-0 Seminoles returned to the practice field today for the first time since shutting out the Boston College Eagles by a 14-0 score on Friday night. This is a bye week for the 'Noles, who practiced in shells and will play at Wake Forest next Saturday.
Dalvin Cook, after getting a little banged up late in the BC game, practiced in an non-contact jersey but didn't seem to be favoring anything. Freshman Nyqwan Murray still has the first two fingers of his left hand taped up and uses that hand reluctantly and infrequently when catching passes.
The first-team offensive line reps went to Rod Johnson, Kareem Are, Corey Martinez, Wilson Bell, and, Derrick Kelly was in place at right tackle ahead of Brock Ruble after relieving him there against the Eagles. Chad Mavety worked out again.
DBs Trey Marshall and Keelin Smith are out of the non-contact jerseys they were wearing last week, while Nate Andrews retains his now-trademark club.
Freshmen offensive linemen Cole Minshew and Abdul Bello are still sidelined, as is fellow first-year player Marcus Lewis. Frosh tight end Jalen Wilkerson remains out with a shoulder injury. Defensive ends Chris Casher and Lorenzo Featherston are still out as well, but Fisher expects them back for Wake Forest, and they both worked on footwork and agility drills on the sideline. Featherston looks quite confident in his recently scoped knee, as he's moving very effectively.
FSU will open up practice to media once again tomorrow, so check back in for another practice report.
