TALLAHASSEE, Fla. — The Florida State football team practiced
for 20 periods this afternoon as they continued spring drills. The
Seminoles worked on fundamentals during the first 10 periods and did
some scrimmaging in the second half of the practice.
“We did some inside work with the running game,” said defensive
coordinator Mickey Andrews. “We also played some game-type situations,
a little short yardage and goalline. If you can play the situations and
not give up the big play, you have a chance. We won some (the defense)
and they (the offense) won their share this afternoon.”
Head coach Bobby Bowden was out of town attending an FCA
function of Texas and was not at practice.
Travis Minor turned in the top play of the day when he scampered
70 yards for a touchdown on a screen play.
The team will practice again Thursday and then hold the first
full scrimmage of the spring on Saturday.
“Today was just our fifth day of practice, so its difficult to
tell where you are,” said Andrews. “Saturday’s scrimmage is the
half-way point of spring and that will be a measuring stick of where we
are and what we have to do.”
Injury report: WR Greg Moore (probable left knee ACL tear) and
DE O.J. Jackson (left knee MCL sprain). Moore will have an MRI in the
next few days.
