Florida State Seminoles football quarterback Jordan Travis hurt his hand during last Saturday’s game against the Notre Dame Fighting Irish, and head coach Mike Norvell said during Monday’s press conference that while the quarterback was limited, he’s still working through it.
“He was limited [during] Sunday [practice], sore coming off the game. Everything is moving in a positive direction.”
On Saturday, Norvell spoke a little bit more on Travis’ hand:
“He was struggling there late, being able to grip the ball. So we made the decision getting James in there late in the contest.”
“My hand is doing good,” Travis said Saturday. “I’ll get some treatment in the morning, I’ll be fine. But I’m learning that I have to get down and protect myself a little bit. I have to do a lot better because there’s hits that were unnecessary today. I just have to work on that.”
Travis started his first game of his career against new No. 4 Notre Dame, putting up 204 yards, one touchdown and one interception as well as 96 rushing yards and a score.
Hamsah Nasirildeen, who has been out all season, is on a “week-to-week” basis, according to Norvell.
“It’s a day-to-day, week-to-week situation with him. When he’s ready to play at the level we believe he can, he’ll be out there.”
He also spoke on freshman offensive lineman Thomas Schrader, who has struggled with several injuries early but is easing back into action.
“Thomas has had a couple set backs early on in the season. He is definitely in the mix [to start]. He’s been impressive with the talent he has and how he’s picked up what he’s been asked to do.”
