FSU’s injured defensive trio still recuperating

Coach Jimbo Fisher offered no update on his injured defensive tackles after Tuesday’s practice.

Starters Eddie Goldman and Nile Lawrence-Stample, and reserve Justin Shanks all left Saturday’s win over The Citadel with lower-leg injuries. None returned to the game.

FSU’s next game is Sept. 20 against Clemson.

“They’ll be evaluated day by day,” Fisher said. “Just as they go.”

The Seminoles did, however, receive some good news Tuesday with the return of linebacker Markus Eligwe. Eligwe missed all of fall camp with a Lisfranc (foot) injury, but Fisher said he was encouraged with what Eligwe showed in practice.

“We’ll bring him along as we go here, as quickly as we can go,” Fisher said.
