Florida State Seminoles football head coach Mike Norvell spoke with the media on Tuesday, and took the time to address a few players who have been missing time with injuries.
Of note, Norvell was insistent that there’s a chance that one or both of defensive back Travis Jay and defensive tackle Robert Cooper who were both injured in the game against the Miami-Florida Hurricanes, could be available sooner than some thing — possibly for Saturday’s game against the Notre Dame Fighting Irish.
When asked if it could “weeks or months” before they’re back, Norvell responded, “or days.”
As for quarterback Chubba Purdy, he’s still working his way back after a broken collarbone suffered in fall camp. Norvell says they’re easing him along, both in contact and an in the playbook.
“He’s coming along — I like his progress, he’s getting close. Today we pushed a little bit more, it’s the start of a new week.
He went through Sunday night some team activities, which was good to see, getting him accustomed to the speed of it.
And that’s going to continue on here the rest of this week. He’s comfortable and feels ready to go.
Even started introducing things like getting hit hit by bags and just knowing that contact is coming.
It’s something that it’s so hard to simulate, especially at that position. But he’s coming along well.”
No updates were given on other players.
