After practice on Tuesday, Jimbo Fisher announced season-ending injuries to two members of the offensive live. Fisher confirmed what we broke on Saturday, that redshirt freshman center Baveon Johnson underwent meniscus surgery and will miss the entire 2017 season. Likewise, redshirt freshman Jauan Williams underwent shoulder surgery and will miss the 2017 campaign.

Fisher also gave an update on linebacker Matthew Thomas who has been out of practice with an “illness.” He remained adamant when saying he expects the senior back. WR Da’Vante Phillips, who is suspended, is still with the team per Fisher.

After the recording cut out (due to Facebook’s length policy) Fisher announced that he expects defensive back Tarvarus McFadden to handle punt return duties and defensive back Derwin James at kick returner with wide receiver Keith Gavin.

The head coach also displayed his displeasure with the targeting rule that carries over from season-to-season. Defensive back Trey Marshall will miss the first half against Alabama after a fourth quarter targeting call in last December’s Orange Bowl.
