The Seminoles returned a number of players to practice today, following yesterday’s initial fall camp scrimmage. We also got a glimpse of some special teams, as well as more signals as to the skill position depth on offense. Key moments comprising today’s FSU practice report include:
- Cornerbacks Ronald Darby and P.J. Williams continue to recover from hamstring injuries and were held out of practice once again. Running back Ryan Green remained out as well.
- Several Florida State players returned from injury today. Freshman wide receivers Travis Rudolph and Javon Harrison each returned, although the latter donned a non-contact jersey (pictured above). Also returning in non-contact jerseys were DE Lorenzo Featherston, DB Colin Blake, LB Jacob Pugh, and LB Delvin Purifoy. Freshman tight end Mavin Saunders returned at full speed.
- The early offensive shell looks ran a reverse. The first rep. involved QB Jameis Winston pitching to running back Karlos Williams, who then flipped the ball to Rashad Greene. The second rep. featured a Winston to Mario Pender to Levonte “Kermit” Whitfield combination, and the third time through it went Winston to Dalvin Cook to Jesus “Bobo” Wilson. Christian Green lined up on the other side throughout, and Freddie Stevenson was the fullback.
- The punt return unit showed today, with an interesting wrinkle in the returner position. Rashad Greene took the first rep., followed by Wilson and then Whitfield. Many expect Wilson to have the edge for this job, so we’ll have to see if this is in any way a product of an impending punishment for his transgression over the summer.
- Jonathan Hernadez had a chance to boot a handful of punts, and the results were largely inconsistent. He boomed a few high and deep but also shanked some.
- The Chicago Bears had a scout at practice, and he was observing the offensive linemen.
