FSU: After week off, Bunkley ready to start

Published October 29, 2004

TALLAHASSEE - Taking Saturday off worked wonders for Brodrick Bunkley 's sprained left ankle.

"It surprised me how good it felt Monday," Bunkley said. "I was like, all right, I'll just wait until we get in pads, and once we got in pads everything was great."

He said he has practiced with only some soreness and likely will start Saturday against Maryland.

The junior nose guard and Chamberlain High graduate had been hobbled since hurting the ankle Oct.2 against North Carolina. After missing the Syracuse game the next weekend, Bunkley started against Virginia. On the second play, he rolled the ankle and didn't return. He sat out last weekend's 20-17 win over Wake Forest.

Bunkley will be joined in the starting lineup by defensive end Eric Moore , defensive coordinator Mickey Andrews said. Moore suffered a similar sprain against UNC and has played sparingly. He also sat out the Wake Forest game.

Saturday will be the first time since Oct.2 that the Seminoles' top four defensive linemen will start together.

STOVALL TO PLAY?: Though listed as questionable, receiver Chauncey Stovall said he will play against the Terrapins.

He strained his hamstring against Wake Forest but said the injury has improved.

"It wasn't as bad a pull as we thought it was," Stovall said.

Receiver Lorne Sam also practiced for the first time since aggravating the stress fracture in his left foot on Tuesday.
