Fullback Joe Surratt will be sidelined indefinitely due to a fractured right fibula sustained in Thursday night's scrimmage. Surratt will probably have surgery Monday and his status for the rest of the season will be determined after the operation. Bobby Bowden said that Surratt could be back by the middle of the season but also did not rule out the possibility of a medical redshirt.
Freshman wide receiver Bert Reed returned to practice after missing four days of practice following the death of his brother this past weekend. Reed took part in the second half of practice on Friday.
Louisburg College transfer Jonathan Hannah practiced in full pads for the first time in Thursday's scrimmage. The tight end caught two passes for 18 yards, and finished the goal-line drill with a touchdown reception from Drew Weatherford.
