TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – Florida State squeezed in a Saturday morning practice after pushing back it’s originally scheduled scrimmage to Monday. That second scrimmage of the spring will take place at 3:30 p.m. Monday inside Doak Campbell Stadium.
“It was better today, physical,” FSU head coach Jimbo Fisher said. “Defense won some. Offense won some. It was a good practice. There are still some inconsistencies that we got to get ironed out, but we’re getting there. We got to clean some things up.”
Fisher did announce that senior linebacker Vince Williams broke his tibia during practice on Thursday and will miss the remainder of spring drills. Fisher said Williams will be sidelined for four to six weeks.
“He got a lil crack in his tibia,” Fisher said. “He’ll be out about 4-6 weeks. It’s broke but just a slight crack.”
Fisher said he’s looking for his team to be more consistent and eliminate the mistakes from the first scrimmage. He’s hoping that big plays on both defense and offense help in doing that.
“You got to create momentum with big plays on offense and bigs plays on defense,” Fisher said. “College sports are games of momentum. You got to make those plays and capitalize on them. I want to see the offense make a play when the defense does it right and I want to see the defense make a play when the offense does it right. When the talent level is equal, what do you do? That’s the games you get measured bye.”
“It means you have a good football team. They done it right, but I can still make a play. As a coach, it tells you who you can count on in those big games.”
