After Thursday's scrimmage and spending three hours outside under the hot Florida sun, Florida State Seminole head coach, Jimbo Fisher, came away impressed with his squad on both the offensive and defensive sides of the ball, according to a report on Seminoles.com.

"We did some good things on both sides of the ball," Fisher said. "I really like the way the offense came out early; was very physical and ran the ball well... Defensively, we gave up a few things, then went back and did some things well on third down. I was pleased with their third-down effort."

Fifth-year senior quarterback E.J. Manuel was held out of the scrimmage for precautionary reasons by Fisher after injuring his ankle on Wednesday in practice. The team will practice again on Friday in a much lighter workout.
