Hey everyone, FIU took the field Wednesday morning wearing shoulder pads for the first time (as per NCAA rules) in training camp. The guys where going full speed today and doing some light contact stuff. Full pads are not allowed till Friday. The Panthers will have their first scrimmage on Saturday.
TE Jonathan Faucher was not wearing the walking boot he had been sporting the past few days. Cristobal said earlier this week that it would be between 10 and 12 days before he was 100 percent healthy.
LB Pooh Bear Mars was limited in practice.
DL Jason Fitch has not practiced and is waiting for his physical clearance. Cristobal expects him to practice in the next few days.
DL James Jones was throwing up on the sidelines during practice on Wednesday. After drinking some water, Jones quickly rejoined his teammates.
WR Rockey Vann is hurt (undisclosed) and will redshirt.
