With the Wake Forest game three days away, Florida State returned to practice in full uniforms for the first time this week on a gloomy, overcast Tuesday afternoon.


From left to right, the offensive line in today's practice was Rod Johnson, Kareem Are, Ryan Hoefeld, Wilson Bell, and Derrick Kelly,  the same starting line that we have seen for the last week of practice. Corey Martinez was working at left guard with the 2nd team for the second consecutive day.

Dalvin Cook was a full participant yet again with Jacques Patrick and Jonathan Vickers working as the 2nd and 3rd running backs in Mario Pender's continued absence while he recovers from the collapsed lung suffered one week ago in practice.

Freshman wide receiver Nyqwan Murray made two-handed catches again but still has a protective glove and medical tape on his left hand. JJ Cosentino has shed the knee brace that he was wearing on Monday after just one practice.


Nate Andrews remains a full participant despite the now-trademark club on his injured hand. Other than that, the defense remains extraordinarily healthy, with no new members added to the injury list.

Special Teams

Roberto Aguayo worked on his field goal attempts at practice on Tuesday, maxing out at 45 yards. On kick returns, it was still Jalen Ramsey and Kermit Whitfield, who seem to be developing a good chemistry, back deep.


After returning to practice last week, frosh offensive lineman Cole Minshew was not participating in today's practice, instead riding the stationary bike off to the side. Chad Mavety, who was not practicing, seems to still be suffering from the concussion he suffered during preseason camp as he has been unable to string together back-to-back practice appearances in recent weeks. Freshmen Jalen Wilkerson (shoulder) and Abdul Bello (knee) continue to have injuries that hinder their return to participation at practice. Mario Pender, who was still in the hospital as of yesterday recovering from a collapsed lung, was not at practice.

Next Practice

The Seminoles next hold a closed practice on Wednesday with the next media-open practice currently scheduled for Thursday when Fisher will also release the injury report.
