FSU football dealt with a multitude of injuries during its 24-7 victory over the Pittsburgh Panthers. However, even with five wide receivers missing in action, the Seminoles were able to take care of its business.
Florida State head football coach Mike Norvell met with the media on Wednesday afternoon to discuss the injury status of wide receiver Keon Coleman as well a general overview of the other injuries suffered by players on the roster:
“He is doing great. We are continuing to see as guys progress during the week to see exactly where they will be at. I think we are seeing positive strides with a lot of guys. We will see where it is when we get closer to kickoff.”
Norvell does not disclose much information when it comes to injury updates. However, it is encouraging that injured players such as Keon Coleman, Johnny Wilson, and Deuce Spann have been practicing this week.
As Florida State navigates through the remainder of its schedule, it is important to note that the Seminoles will need their best players if they want an opportunity to compete at the highest level.
Florida State has been relatively lucky when it comes to injury luck. While every team suffers bumps and bruises through the course of the year, it is worth mentioning that strength and conditioning coach Josh Storms has had this team ready for the path ahead.
The Seminoles will need their best effort this weekend as they take on their arch-rival Miami Hurricanes in the friendly confines of Doak Campbell Stadium. The Hurricanes will do everything in their power to spoil the Seminoles’ undefeated season.
Florida State is currently listed as 14.5-point home favorites over Miami at this time. If the Seminoles are at full strength health wise, this could be a fantastic showing from head football coach Mike Norvell and company.
