TALLAHASSEE -- Florida State is hoping to have a couple of seniors back in time to face No. 3 Clemson a week from Saturday.
Center Bryan Stork and defensive tackle Demonta McAllister are recovering from concussions.
“I think we have a chance to get both of them back by the beginning of next week, from what I understand — as long as there aren’t any more setbacks,” coach Jimbo Fisher said after practice Thursday.
“But they’re progressing very nicely.”
McAllister missed last Saturday’s game against Maryland, and Stork left the game in the first half.
FSU is off this weekend before the sixth-ranked Seminoles play at Clemson on Oct. 19.
Big Game for ACC
Fisher also spoke Thursday about the ramifications the game with the Tigers would have for the Atlantic Coast Conference.
“I think it’s very good. It’s what promotes your league,” Fisher said. “That’s what brings you exposure, and that’s why you play in these games. I think it’s good for Florida State; I think it’s good for Clemson.”
