Broderick Bunkley, meanwhile, will probably wait until after Florida State's bowl game to have surgery (diagnostic scope) on his injured left knee. Bunkley suffered a torn MCL when chop blocked during FSU's win over rival Florida last Saturday at Doak Campbell Stadium.
Bunkley, a freshman from Tampa Chamberlain, underwent reconstructive surgery on that same knee while in high school. The MCL is a non-surgical ligament. However, Bunkley's knee wll be visually inspected by team physicans via the diagnostic scope. His status for the bowl game is questionable at best.
Noseguard Jeff Womble underwent surgery Monday on a torn Achilles tendon (left). Womble's rehabilitation will take around eight months and he should be fine next season.
Senior tailback Nick Maddox (righ ankle) and senior guard Montrae Holland (right ankle) are expected to be fine for the Seminoles' bowl game after each being slowed by ankle injuries. Jerome Carter suffered a stinger (left shoulder/neck area) against the Gators but is also expected to be fine once the Seminoles resume practice next Friday.
