During his press conference to open the 2017 fall camp session, FSU head coach Jimbo Fisher noted that with the exception of freshman OL Brady Scott, the team is completely healthy for the start of camp.

Last season, Florida State had its fair share of injuries with multiple starters missing time. Star DB Derwin James missed 11 games, DE Josh Sweat missed one game, OL Landon Dickerson missed five games, DB Ermon Lane missed the Orange Bowl, WR Bobo Wilson missed six games, DB Nate Andrews missed nine games and WR George Campbell missed the entire season.

All of those players, besides Wilson who has moved onto the professional ranks, are ready for fall camp and will be a full-go at practice on Tuesday according to Fisher.

The bill of health also goes for eligibility issues as Fisher says everyone is squared away academically and will be eligible for the upcoming season.
