Due to lightning, Florida State’s practice on Thursday was held inside the indoor practice facility. FSU’s game prep for Alabama continued in front of scouts from the Carolina Panthers, Arizona Cardinals and Pittsburgh Steelers.
Note: Today’s Florida State football practice was a little different from the perspective of the media. We weren’t allowed to film highlights and were only allowed to take photographs.
Taking snaps on the offensive line on Thursday from left to right were; Derrick Kelly, Landon Dickerson, Alec Eberle, Brock Ruble and Rick Leonard
Also taking snaps on the offensive line, left to right, were; Josh Ball, Ethan Frith, Corey Martinez, Mike Arnold and Abdul Bello.
The Florida State running backs were practicing ball security once again.
The quarterbacks were also working with the wide receivers as they do every practice.
Imagine Derwin James running some pursuit drills.
Ricky Aguayo made all four of his field goals from 45 yards or closer. The only one he missed was a field goal of 49 yards, a distance we had not seen him kick from in fall camp. The kick had the distance, but was wide left.
Tight end Ryan Izzo was back at practice after missing Tuesday’s session.
Cole Minshew was out of Thursday’s practice.
Linebacker Matthew Thomas remained out of practice on Thursday. Fisher said he expects him back, “very, very, very soon.”
Remaining out was linebacker Dontavious Jackson who continues to wear a knee brace. Fisher said his injury will keep him out, “A little while.”
Defensive tackle Adam Torres was also out.
Offensive lineman Brady Scott is still recovering from a broken foot, and defensive back Cyrus Fagan is also recovering from knee surgery.
Offensive linemen David Robbins and Andrew Boselli were also out for a second consecutive open practice.
Already announced were the season-ending injuries to offensive linemen Baveon Johnson (knee) and Jauan Williams (shoulder). Both had surgery.
