Jimbo Fisher addresses team health after FSU’s first scrimmage of fall camp

New, 2 comments

Per Fisher, lots of missing players should be returning soon.

Florida State held its first scrimmage of fall camp Sunday night, opting for a late 7 PM start time to prepare the team for the late kickoff times the Seminoles will face in their first three games of the upcoming season.

At the practice, there were a number of players of varying importance missing, ranging from senior linebacker Matthew Thomas to outside linebacker Jacob Pugh to offensive lineman Cole Minshew, who had been working with the first team throughout fall camp at right guard.

When addressing the media after the scrimmage on Sunday, though, Fisher was adamant that there was no cause for concern. He maintained that all or nearly all of the players missing on Sunday will be back practicing next week.

Fisher also made sure to specifically praise linebackers Emmett Rice and Leonard Warner for stepping up with multiple inside linebackers out of action.

Additionally, freshman safety Hamsah Nasirildeen drew a lot of positive words from Fisher, who praised his size, athleticism and range which are all making him stand out.
