TALLAHASSEE -- If the season started today, Florida State would have some major depth issues at center. The top two centers on the depth chart are battling foot injuries.
Junior Austin Barron (Fort Lauderdale St. Thomas Aquinas) will miss up to a month after being diagnosed with a broken bone in his foot.
“He played all day yesterday, he had a phenomenal day, we ran him with the ones and mixed him in at center, I mean he had a phenomenal day. Walked in [today] and said his foot was sore,” said coach Jimbo Fisher. “Turns out he had a little break on the outside bone.”
Starting center, senior Bryan Stork, is working back from a foot injury. Stork had surgery on his big toe in the offseason.
“We always gauge him, and every four days we give him a break,” Fisher said. “He doesn’t need reps.”
Junior Sterling Lovelady took snaps at center for the Seminoles during practice Friday. True freshman Ira Denson has also been day-to-day with a sprained shoulder.
