Tallahassee, FL (AP) - Florida State's Christian Ponder is
still troubled with an elbow injury on his throwing arm.

Ponder missed his weekly media session Monday to visit with
doctors about soreness and swelling in the elbow that he originally
hurt in a 24-19 win over Boston College last month.

Ponder suffered a ruptured bursa sac near his elbow, creating a
large amount of swelling and discomfort. He was able to play 10
days later at North Carolina State after having daily treatments
and fluid drained from the injured area.

Ponder irritated the injury in Saturday's 37-35 loss to North
Carolina but still passed for 264 yards and three touchdowns.

Coach Jimbo Fisher said he wouldn't know the extent of Ponder's
injury until later Monday.

    I think Ponder is a great quarterback but something has got to change. I am not saying give up on the rest of the season for experience sake but E.J. Manuel is gonna be our quarterback next year. He needs some game experience. Are our coaches not smart enough to execute what Muyer has done in Gainesville. I cant stand the man but the two and three quarterback system seems to have picked them up a little. Why cant Fisher bring something like that to the table. I am not saying bench Ponder at all, but what I am saying is I think Fisher can and better fit Manuel in somehow so that next season we can get the most out of what was going to be one of the top 3 recruiting classes in the country. Notice was in that sentence
