Junior offensive guard Tre Jackson is listed as doubtful for Saturday’s home opener against Nevada.

With Jackson likely to miss time, redshirt sophomore Ruben Carter, who finished Florida State’s season-opening win over Pittsburgh, is the next man up.

“I’m extremely confident [in Ruben],” coach Jimbo Fisher said. “I think he’s 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 State’s 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.

“He’s right on the verge of coming back — he’s right on the edge of it,” said Fisher. “I think he’ll be back at practice on Monday, I really do. It’s what we’re planning on.”
