Noles’ E.J. Manuel’s Status For Clemson Unknown

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (CBSMiami.com) – The Florida State Seminoles schedule doesn’t get any easier Saturday when the team takes on the Clemson Tigers.

But, the biggest question surrounding the Seminoles’ chances against Clemson is the health of starting quarterback E.J. Manuel.

Manuel injured his non-throwing shoulder in the third quarter of the Noles’ loss to number one ranked Oklahoma last Saturday.

Noles head Coach Jimbo Fisher said the recovery from the injury could be anywhere from a day to two weeks. The situation should be clearer after Manuel sees the specialist Monday.

Saturday’s game at No. 21 Clemson (3-0) is the Atlantic Coast Conference opener for both schools. The winner gets an early leg up in the race for the ACC’s Atlantic Division title and spot in the league’s December championship game in Charlotte, N.C.
