Florida State’s beleaguered offensive line received good news this week when juniors Austin Barron (center) and Tre Jackson (guard) returned to practice. Barron has been sidelined all season as he recovers from a foot injury. Jackson was injured in the season-opening 41-13 win over Pitt and missed last Saturday’s game against Nevada. He was replaced by redshirt sophomore Ruben Carter.

Bell Out 4 to 6 Weeks

Freshman tackle Wilson Bell, who left Saturday’s game with a knee injury, had an MRI on Monday that revealed damage to his MCL.

“It was not as bad as we thought — we thought it was an ACL when he first went,” coach Jimbo Fisher said. “He’s still got a lot of rehab, but it wasn’t as bad [as we thought].”
