Florida State’s quarterback battle continues


Miami Herald Writer

As Florida State completed its final scrimmage of camp Wednesday, all eyes were on the quarterback battle between redshirt freshman Jameis Winston and redshirt sophomore Jacob Coker.

Earlier in the week, coach Jimbo Fisher had given an indication that he would make a determination after Wednesday’s scrimmage. FSU’s final scrimmage came and went, but Fisher wasn’t ready to make his decision just yet.

“I’m sure there are some things I’ll see when I look at the film, but I thought both guys handled the huddle well, made plays, got the ball down the field vertically and dumped it off,” Fisher said. “I was very pleased with how they played in the scrimmage. I’m going to look, and we are going to make a decision.”

• Receiver Rashad Greene was sidelined with a finger injury. Fisher said he plans to give Greene until Saturday to get healthy for the season opener.
