The Seminoles returned to the practice field for the first time since their season-opening pummeling of Texas State today, practicing in shells under overcast skies and mild temperatures in the low 80s.
Freshman wideout Nyqwan Murray continues to participate in a limited capacity with a cast on his hand, and Abdul Bello returned from a knee injury to practice. Fellow offensive lineman Cole Minshew remains out, but he's no longer wearing a walking boot. The offensive line first-team remains the same that started on Saturday: left to right, Rod Johnson, Kareem are, Corey Martinez, Wilson Bell, and Brock Ruble.
Trey Marshall, who got dinged up against the Bobcats on Saturday, didn't show any signs of injury; Jimbo Fisher said he was fine in today's press conference. Nile Lawrence-Stample was wearing a left knee brace.
Fisher voiced his pleasure with coverage units at the aforementioned press conference, but he certainly wasn't letting them rest on their laurels today-- the kick coverage unit took extra reps when committing offside penalties.
Lineman Chad Mavety remains out with a concussion. Frosh DB Marcus Lewis still on crutches, and sophomore Lorenzo Featherston continues to recover from a knee scope. but he was doing some light agility work on the sideline. Jalen Wilkerson was not working out today, and Keith Bryant was on the stationary bike. Mavin Saunders was getting stretched out on the sideline while media were present.
And of course, former defensive back Colin Blake is no longer listed on the latest FSU roster that was released today.
It's a bit of an abbreviated practice report today-- but that's a good thing, as the 'Noles are quite healthy right now.
We'll be back here tomorrow at 3:45 for another practice.
