It was a hot one in Tallahassee as the Florida State Seminoles entered Doak Campbell Stadium Tuesday afternoon for their first scrimmage of fall. In the midst of their second week of practice, FSU's staff is making it a point to get some of the younger guys reps while a handful of veterans are out.
Markus Eligwe, Ryan Green, Tyrell Lyons, Travis Rudolph and Ja'Vonn Harrison all remained on the non-dressed list, while Ronald Darby and P.J. Williams were not in attendance. Jacob Pugh was in a neck brace and not dressed out on Tuesday.
Chris Casher, however, was dressed out Tuesday, but still seemed a little limited.
Kevin Haplea, Dalvin Cook and Rashad Greene wore blue no-contact jerseys. Haplea and Cook have worn them for days, and Greene is likely precautionary - no reason for him to get hurt.
Josue Matias, who was dressed out Tuesday, remains a little limited, giving more reps to Kareem Are at the left guard position. Worth noting: Are looks as good as he has looked since stepping on campus.
True freshman Derrick Nnadi is getting more and more reps with the starters every day, and looks good from what I've seen. Mostly lining up at the nose, Nnadi has been playing a mixture of one and two-technique.
With the absence of Darby and Williams, Marquez White took reps opposite Nick Waisome at the corner position, while Jalen Ramsey dropped back into the safety position. Trey Marshall, who head coach Jimbo Fisher seemed very excited about following Monday's practice, continued to take reps at the star position. Matthew Thomas also spent some time with the starters in FSU's 4-3 set.
Something I overheard that seems noteworthy was Charles Kelly calling over to Jalen Ramsey, referring to the sophomore as "coach."
Jimbo Fisher will speak with the media following the scrimmage, as well as some players.
