Miami quarterback Stephen Morris might still be dealing with the effects of an ankle injury, but FSU coach Jimbo Fisher wasn’t about to tip his hand when asked Tuesday how he planned to attack UM’s senior quarterback.

“I mean we’re going to try to affect the quarterback no matter what, that’s one of our main goals on defense whether he can move, he can’t move — you’ve got to affect the quarterback,” Fisher said. “It looked like he was moving pretty good to me the way he was moving around and making some throws.”

Injury updates

Running back James Wilder Jr. returned to practice after missing last week’s game. “He’s fine, he’s rolling now, going full speed,” Fisher said. “He’s doing great.”

Wilder sustained a concussion two weeks ago at Clemson.
