Junior safety Tyler Hunter left last Saturday’s game with a neck contusion and has missed a couple of days of practice. He is listed as questionable for Saturday’s game at Boston College.

“That’s up to the doctors,” coach Jimbo Fisher said. “They’re still evaluating him and we’ll see where he is, we have to wait day-by-day and just see. He’s in the game plan stuff and all that, he may be able to play, he may not.”

If Hunter can’t play, junior Keelin Smith and freshman Jalen Ramsey could see time in his place.

“Jalen’s been going back and forth [from corner] to safety, and we love him there making calls and what he does,” said Fisher.

Waisome update

Another player who could see more time with Hunter out is Nick Waisome. Fisher said after missing the spring that the junior corner was starting to feel like himself again. “He said the last couple weeks just started feeling his legs get back,” Fisher said.
