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.
