TALLAHASSEE, Fla. - A handful of Florida State football players have required surgery since the end of the season and some of those will miss spring practice or have their participation limited during rehabilitation.
Four Seminoles - quarterback EJ Manuel (shoulder), offensive tackles Zebrie Sanders (hip) and Garrett Faircloth (hip), and defensive tackle Moses McCray (elbow) - will not participate in spring practice following surgical procedures.
Quarterback Christian Ponder (shoulder) and offensive tackle Rhonne Sanderson (ankle) will participate in spring practice on a limited basis initially as they continue to recover, while guard David Spurlock (knee) and center A..J. Ganguzza (elbow) have recovered sufficiently to participate from the start.
Also, offensive tackle Antwane Greenlee is still rehabilitating from knee surgery in the fall and will participate on a limited basis at this point.
Spring practice begins Tuesday, March 16, two days after school reconvenes following spring break.
