FSU’s Christian Jones, Eddie Goldman suspended one game
Florida State linebacker Christian Jones and defensive tackle Eddie Goldman have been suspended for Saturday’s game against Bethune-Cookman for a violation of team rules.
FSU coach Jimbo Fisher made the announcement after Thursday’s practice. Fisher did not disclose a reasoning for the one-game suspensions.
“Those guys will not be playing this week for us,” Fisher said. “We have to abide by a certain set of guidelines.”
Fisher said both would be back at practice on Monday.
Jones, a senior, led the team in tackles in 2012 and is second on the team this year with 13.
Goldman, a sophomore, has two tackles in two games.
Terrance Smith will start in Jones’ linebacker spot. Goldman started both games at left end, and Fisher said FSU would turn to a rotation that includes Dan Hicks, DeMarcus Walker and Ukeme Eligwe.
Fisher also said that sophomore defensive end Mario Edwards Jr. (hand) would miss the Bethune game.
