New, 212 comments

The latest from Florida State’s practice on Sunday night.

Florida State practiced under the lights Sunday night, taking to Doak Campbell Stadium for the team’s first scrimmage of fall camp.


Linebacker Dontavious Jackson, receiver DJ Matthews and defensive back Nate Andrews were all in shells on the sidelines during practice. Linebacker Jacob Pugh was dressed out, but did not participate in drills.

Offensive lineman Jauan Williams was spotted with an arm sling and Cole Minshew was also absent. Fisher expects each of these guys, along with those listed in the first paragraph, to be back in practice next week.

The list of players that have missed the last few practices remain out. That list includes offensive lineman Brady Scott with a broken foot, defensive back Cyrus Fagan who continues to recover from knee surgery, defensive tackle Ja’Len Parks, tight end Alexander Marshall as he recovers from hand surgery and defensive lineman Adam Torres. Linebacker Matt Thomas continues to fight an illness and was not at practice.

Defensive back Hamsah Nasirildeen continues to practice with a non-contact jersey.


On the offensive line, all was the same with the exception of David Robbins making an appearance at first-team right guard replacing Cole Minshew who was absent. In all, the line from left to right was: Josh Ball, Landon Dickerson, Alec Eberle, David Robbins and Rick Leonard.

At running back, Johnathan Vickers was working out for the first time this week after battling a significant illness.

QB James Blackman continues to look good in practice.


With Jackson, Thomas and Pugh out, the first-team linebackers in pursuit drills were Ro’Derrick Hoskins, Emmett Rice and Josh Brown.

Special Teams:

We got to see the punters kick for the first time all camp. Also for the first time, we saw each specialist kick-off.


Florida State will have an off-day on Monday with practice resuming on Tuesday, once again open to the media.
