Winston practices, FSU coach not worried about QB
TALLAHASEE, Fla. (AP) Florida State coach Jimbo Fisher is not concerned with the health of quarterback Jameis Winston after the Heisman winner tweaked an ankle during the win against Louisville last week.
Fisher called it an injury no different than several other players with ''sore ankles.''
Fisher said during his Monday press conference, ''Pain is temporary. You've got to put it away.''
Winston favored the ankle during much of the second half, but still threw for a season-high 401 yards and three touchdowns as he led the Seminoles back from a 21-point deficit.
Winston participated in practice Monday as No. 2 Florida State prepares to host Virginia on Saturday. His 325.6 passing yards per game ranks No. 6 in the nation.
