According to Al.com's Wednesday report, Troy quarterback Corey Robinson hadn't been given medical clearance to take the practice field yet, much less play Saturday against FIU. It increasingly looks like Deon Anthony, not the passer Robinson is, will start Satursday.
FIU senior wide receiver Jacob Younger didn't practice again Thursday.
Saturday's 1 p.m. Eastern start suits FIU coach Mario Cristobal, who'd like more of those at FIU Stadium so the heat could help roast visiting teams as it used to for the University of Miami and the Dolphins. Once hardy South Florida fans tend to be almost as roast averse as visiting teams these days, however.
