Jimbo Fisher’s injury report released Thursday evening looked more optimistic than it has in few weeks.
Greene was listed as questionable.
Freshman receiver Rashad Greene continues to carry an ankle problem that still has him listed as questionable, but beyond that, there were no real surprises.
Even still, Fisher left some room for Greene to return to the lineup depending on how he feels right up until the opening kick against Maryland on Saturday afternoon.
“He was out there some. He is getting better,” Fisher said. It is going to be very interesting. He could be close.”
Senior guard David Spurlock’s status doesn’t look as promising. The one silver lining is that it Spurlock isn’t deign with a concussion-related issue, but rather a knee injury.
“No doubt,” Fisher said confirming Spurlock would be out. “He may be out for a while…Knee, he’s got a knee.”
Garrett Faircloth will make his second consecutive start at right guard in his stead.
Fisher pointed out that the vast majority of the Seminoles’ injuries in 2011 have come on the offensive side of the ball. Perhaps those fortunes could change as the season progresses.
“Luck ain’t been on our side in a while, in that department – injuries,” said Fisher. “We’ve had a lot of them, about 10 of them on offense counting the lineman that are out for the season.”
