Medlock doubtful

Wednesday's practice saw the appearance of quarterback Jake Medlock. It didn't see the actual practicing of quarterback Jake Medlock, a concussion victim Saturday.

"I haven't heard anything official yet," FIU coach Ron Turner said. "Obviously, he didn't go again today. I would say it's probably not looking good. They have not ruled him out yet. So, we'll wait and see tomorrow."

Wednesday also saw the appearance of Travis Wright, freshman out of Louisville Trinity, the backup to sophomore E.J. Hilliard if Medlock can't play. That is, if whatever problems Wright has get cleared by the NCAA.

"For the time being," Wright's cleared, Turner said.

If he's somehow ineligible, The Akil Dan-Fodio Experience will back up Hilliard. Dan-Fodio came to FIU as a quarterback, moved to tight end and hasn't taken a snap in a game as anything but a tight end.

Turner also said he didn't know when he'd decide between redshirt freshman Sergio Sroka and freshman Austin Taylor for handling the kicking duties Saturday. He might go as late as pregame warmups. Even if Medlock plays, however, redshirt freshman Chris Ayers will do the punting.

Louisville's announced a sellout.
