Florida State sophomore DL Mario Edwards (hand) will play Saturday against Maryland.

Edwards has missed the past two games with a broken right hand. "He has had one of the best weeks of practice he has had since he's been here. I've been very pleased," coach Jimbo Fisher said. "I think a little bit of it could be fresh legs — rejuvenated. Sometimes you miss something and it reminds you of how much you like it — how much fun it is to be out there. He's practiced really well." Edwards was rated the No. 3 overall player in the country in his recruiting class; he played in 11 games as a true freshman in 2012.

Florida State sophomore DL Mario Edwards is considered probable for Saturday's game against Maryland.

Edwards has missed the last tow games after breaking his right hand. He is now practicing with a glove or club. Edwards did have surgery to speed up the healing process, inserting a plate and eight screws into the injured area.

Florida State true freshman Mario Edwards is now considered the third DE in the rotation.

It is quite a quick move up the depth chart for Edwards, who coaches were considering redshirting even through week one of the season. However, after senior Brandon Jenkins went down for the season and Tank Carradine had to step up into the starting lineup, Edwards was left as the most talented player on the bench.

With the loss of senior DE Brandon Jenkins for the season, Florida State head coach Jimbo Fisher announced that freshman DL Mario Edwards will not redshirt.

Neither will defensive end Chris Casher. Edwards had previously been upset with his role on the scout team as the Seminoles prepared to redshirt him. The freshman was so disgruntled that he failed to attend a team dinner and the following day's game. Senior Tank Carradine will take the starter's snaps, but the drop off to the next reliable pass rusher could be significant.

FSU true freshman DL Mario Edwards is reportedly upset with his role on the team and does not understand why he is being forced to practice with the scout team.

The freshman reportedly missed the team's Friday meal and did not show up for the opener on Saturday. It is unclear if the Seminoles staff plan to redshirt Edwards, but he certainly is not taking well.
