Mario Pender is questionable for Saturday’s game against Notre Dame.

Karlos Williams is back to 100-percent and Rashad Greene was given a day off for Monday’s practice.

Jimbo said he expects to have official word on Mathew Thomas tomorrow.

Jimbo was asked about Jameis’ autograph situation and said that he felt very good about it. He said that there are thousands of Jameis autographs out there because he refuses to turn anyone away at baseball games. He did say that Florida State may have to look into changing the autograph policy to protect the players. He said that Florida State compliance is still looking into the matter, but that they feel very confident.
