TALLAHASSEE -- Junior offensive guard Tre Jackson is listed as doubtful for Saturdays home opener against Nevada.
With Jackson likely to miss time, redshirt sophomore Ruben Carter, who finished Florida States season-opening win over Pittsburgh, is the next man up.
Im extremely confident [in Ruben], coach Jimbo Fisher said. I think hes had a good week of practice, has done some really nice things and played well in the game the other day. I feel very comfortable with Ruben.
Barron Nearly Back
With Florida States offensive line already thinned by injuries, the Seminoles received some good news Thursday when Fisher announced junior center Austin Barron (Fort Lauderdale St. Thomas Aquinas) was on the verge of returning to practice.
Hes right on the verge of coming back hes right on the edge of it, said Fisher. I think hell be back at practice on Monday, I really do. Its what were planning on.
