TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) -Florida State running back Antone Smith, the team's leading rusher last season, left practice early Saturday with an undisclosed ailment.
``I don't know if it was an injury or heat,'' Seminoles coach Bobby Bowden said.
After playing behind Leon Washington and Lorenzo Booker his first two seasons, Smith rushed for 819 yards and three touchdowns as Florida State's featured back in 2007. He entered fall practice as the starter but is expected to face competition from junior college transfer Tavares Pressley.
Pressley, who rushed for more than 800 yards and 11 touchdowns at El Camino (Calif.) Community College last season, has missed the first three practices waiting for eligibility clearance from the NCAA.
Saturday's practice closed with a fight between defensive tackle Budd Thacker and offensive lineman Will Furlong. The altercation grew to include center Ryan McMahon and linebacker Kenny Ingram.
``I don't like to see fights,'' Bowden said. ``I'm glad they are feisty, but we ain't got time to wait on them to get through fighting.''
