Tallahassee, FL (AP) - Florida State's Christian Ponder hasn't
escaped many games this season without some kind of nick.
This week it's a ruptured bursa sack in the elbow region of his
throwing arm that has forced the senior quarterback into another
round of treatment. Ponder said Tuesday he was thankful for this
weekend's open date because he might not otherwise have been ready
to play. But Ponder said he would be ready for the Seminoles Oct.
28 date at North Carolina State.
Ponder said he won't throw again for a few days to give his
injured arm more time to heal.
Coach Jimbo Fisher also said starting guard David Spurlock is
out indefinitely after suffering a second concussion this season in
Saturday's 24-19 win over Boston College.
