TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) _ Linebacker Marcus Ball is going to miss
Florida State's upcoming game at Virginia Tech.
Ball is suspended for a violation of team rules.
Redshirt junior Rodney Gallon tweaked his left ankle today and
his status for Saturday is uncertain.
Gallon would normally take Ball's place behind starter Dekoda
Ball returned to the lineup in last Saturday's 27-to-17 win over
Boston College after missing two games with a sprained left ankle.
He is third on the team with three pass break-ups, has one sack and
recovered a fumble on the season.
Florida State backup quarterback Xavier Lee will also miss
Saturday's game against the Hokies. Lee is serving a two-game
suspension for a violation of the team's academic policy.
