FSU QB Has Sprained Shoulder

Quarterback EJ Manuel’s availability for 11th-ranked Florida State’s Atlantic Coast Conference opener at Clemson is on a day-to-day basis, coach Jimbo Fisher said Monday.

Manuel, who didn’t practice Monday, is one of several Seminole offensive players who could miss the team’s first road test of the young season. Fisher had only four scholarship receivers healthy at Monday’s practice.

“It affects you,” the second-year head coach conceded. “Injuries are a part of football. We’ll move around and do differed personnel groupings.”

Manuel sprained his non-throwing left shoulder in Saturday’s 23-13 loss to top-ranked Oklahoma, and doctors checked him again Monday to see if the injury was severe enough to keep him out of the Clemson game.

Fisher said an MRI on Manuel revealed no structural damage.
