With Florida State’s first game against Alabama very much on the horizon, FSU head coach Jimbo Fisher disclosed the team’s official injury report.

There were a few surprises of players both missing and unexpectedly on the report. As reported by Tomahawk Nation last night, Matthew Thomas did indeed practice today and will be available Saturday against Alabama, although Fisher did not confirm if he would be in the starting lineup.

The more surprising news was that sophomore linebacker Dontavious Jackson, who has been out of action nearly three weeks, practiced the last few days and will be available for FSU against the Crimson Tide as well.

Some unexpected additions to the report included sophomore cornerback Carlos Becker III, who rolled his ankle in practice earlier this week, Decalon Brooks, who is still dealing with a knee injury suffered in high school, and Nate Andrews, who has been in and out of practice dealing with a knee injury.

Here’s FSU’s complete injury report ahead of its matchup with Alabama:
