Florida State Seminoles coach Jimbo Fisher said that five-star freshman defensive end Josh Sweat has made an excellent recovery from surgery to repair a torn ACL and dislocated knee and is a “full-go” in team practices. Sweat’s progress was reported by both ESPN’s Jared Shanker and Brendan Sonnone of the Orlando Sentinel.
Considering how Sweat’s knee injury was the type that made taking a redshirt his freshman season seem all but inevitable, the progress he has made thus far is incredibly encouraging. At this point, there is little to suggest that he won’t be ready for the start of the season. With Sweat having excellent size at 6-foot-5, 240 pounds, the Seminoles’ pass rush could very well be headed for a dominant year in 2015 after just registering 17 sacks as a team for all of last season.
Florida State opens the season at home against Texas State on September 5.
