Friday’s practice for the Seminoles saw various players getting first string reps that typically work with the second team. It was also a day in which one player in particular seemingly saw his role in the Seminoles offense change almost entirely. That and more are included in the following FSU practice report from today:
- John Franklin III saw minimal playing time behind center today as he continued to receive an increasing load of reps at wideout.
- Cornerback P.J. Williams continues to recover from his hamstring injuries and was not practicing with the team.
- Freshman linebacker Jacob Pugh continued to wear a non-contact jersey following a fall camp scrimmage that saw him wearing a neck brace.
- Tight end Mavin Saunders continues to impress as he comes off a recent injury.
- Freshman DT Derrick Nnadi practiced with the first string in a position that previously saw Nile Lawrence-Stample take a majority of the reps. Nile was dressed out, but not taking reps with the first or second string. He has been limited at points in camp.
- DeMarcus Walker worked with the first string defense taking reps at LE.
- Senior guard Josue Matias did not dress out today. In his place was junior guard Kareem Are.
- In absence of Mario Pender who did not practice today, freshman RB Dalvin Cook was positioned second following Karlos Williams.
- The return team featured linebacker E.J. Levenberry who was positioned in the center of the second row of the return formation. Levenberry also worked with the first string defense alongside junior Terrance Smith.
- Also on defense, freshman safety Trey Marshall got in partial reps with the first string.
- Both the Denver Broncos and the Dallas Cowboys had scouts at Friday’s practice.
