Syracuse vs. Florida State: Shafer 'Hopeful' For PTG & Eskridge's Return

Mitch Stringer-USA TODAY Sports

Scott Shafer kicks off the week with injury updates and his thoughts on FSU.

Scott Shafer did his weekly OAA discussion to kick off the week before the Florida St. Seminoles game. What did we learn?

On the first drive of the Maryland game...

"Sixteen-play drive…right down the field...physical…really a hard-nosed drive."

On Prince-Tyson Gulley and Durell Eskridge, both of whom were injured in the Maryland game...

"They're both doing well. Hopefully we'll both have them by game time. I think we will, but we'll take it one day at a time."

On Florida State...

"It's one of the best college football teams I've seen in a long time. They have a young freshman quarterback who doesn't play like he's young. And when he's throwing the ball down the field, you know, those wide receivers are really exceptional. I don't know if I've seen a better corp. I thought I had earlier in the year with Clemson…but this group's unbelievable. I started out late last night watching the big plays and it took me about an hour and a half to get through them.

On what things the team needs to focus on improving:

"Continuing to improve on our kicking game…our coverage teams are gonna be important. And when we get into offense and defense…accentuating on the positives that we've had, getting creative as we move in to the game plan and then continuing to get healed up on defense so we can be physical again.
