Jimbo update:

Travis Rudolph was dressed, but according to Jimbo, he was limited to individual drills. Said his progress is coming along fine, but they have over two weeks to get him ready. Also mentioned that EJ Levenberry has earned the spot in the middle after looking the best at that position. I also asked Jimbo about Matthew Thomas and his limited amount of first team reps and Jimbo says Thomas has been taking the same amount of reps as usual. See his reaction below in the video.


The Florida State Seminoles began their second two-a-day Thursday morning following Wednesday's day off. The biggest question following any scrimmage is whether or not everybody came out healthy, and it seems they have.

Ryan Green, Tyrell Lyons and Markus Eligwe were once again not dressed Thursday morning, and Ronald Darby and P.J. Williams weren't at practice, which should not come as a surprise.

Delvin Purifoy, Lorenzo Featherston, Keelin Smith, Colin Blake and Ja'Vonn Harrison were all dressed but wore blue no-contact jerseys.

Travis Rudolph and Jacob Pugh were dressed and fully participating during the morning session of FSU's second two-a-day.

The New England Patriots and the Chicago Bears had scouts at practice, and the Bears seemed particularly interested in the offensive line.

Speaking of the offensive line, Wilson Bell was taking reps as the second team right guard. Coach Trickett also seemed pleased with freshman Derrick Kelly.

With Darby and William missing, Marquez White and Nick Waisome took the first-team reps at the corner positions.

The offense continues to find ways to get the ball in the hands of its playmakers. Showing sets with Karlos Williams set out wide, they opened up a number of possibilities, one of which was a beautifully designed end-around. Also, Jameis Winston continued to show his leadership on the field as he coached-up Bobo Wilson and Kermit Whitfield after they cut off the wrong route. Winston is tough on his receivers, but he's always willing to take the time out to explain what went wrong.

Jimbo Fisher and a couple players will speak following Thursday's morning session.
