Two Florida State Seminoles suspended


Miami Herald Writer

Florida State will be without a pair of suspended defensive starters Saturday when it plays host to Bethune-Cookman.

“There are going to be two guys suspended for this game for violation of team rules: linebacker Christian Jones and defensive end Eddie Goldman,” coach Jimbo Fisher said after Thursday’s practice. “Those guys will not be playing this week for us. It’s all correctable, it’s all done, but we have to abide by a certain set of guidelines.”

Demonte McAllister will start in Goldman’s place, and Terrance Smith will start in place of Jones.

Edwards also out

• In addition to Goldman’s suspension, the Seminoles will also be without starting defensive end Mario Edwards Jr., who had a plate and pins put in his hand last weekend.

“You’ll see [ Ukeme] Eligwe in there and some other guys — DeMarcus [ Walker] and [ Chris] Casher,” Fisher said.

“They’ve all played a lot this year. We’ve got plenty of guys. I have great confidence.”
