FSU Suspends Two Defensive Starters

Florida State has suspended two defensive starters for this weekend?s game against Bethune-Cookman. Linebacker Christian Jones and defensive tackle Eddie Goldman will each be out of action due to violations of team rules, which of course are unspecified at this point.

?It is [disappointing] but it?s all correctable, and it?s all done,? Florida State head coach Jimbo Fisher said Thursday, according to David Hale of ESPN.com. ?But we have to go abide by a certain set of guidelines.?

The Seminoles can afford to be missing a few players this weekend because Bethune-Cookman is hardly a threat. But Jones led the team in tackles a year ago and has been an asset in the defense playing multiple positions this season. Goldman is in his first year as a starter on Florida State?s defensive line.
