Florida State Seminoles’ Eddie Goldman returns

The Florida State defense got some good news Monday when starting defensive tackle Eddie Goldman returned to practice as a full participant.

Goldman sustained an ankle injury in FSU’s Week 2 victory over The Citadel and did not practice last week. Coach Jimbo Fisher expects him to be in the lineup when the top-ranked Seminoles host No.24 Clemson on Saturday.

Two other DTs — Nile Lawrence-Stample and Justin Shanks — had limited practiced after also sustaining injuries against The Citadel.

“Eddie Goldman will be practicing today, he’ll be ready to go. I think Nile and them will be close. They’ll be doing some things, he and Shanks. They’ll both be limited participation, most likely, but Eddie will be full go.”

Fisher said that if FSU had practiced late last week, Goldman likely could have participated.
