Florida State head coach shared some good injury news Thursday evening following the Seminoles' final practice of the week. 

Not only was quarterback Everett Golson cleared to play against Clemson after suffering a concussion against Georgia Tech, but running back Mario Pender was also cleared by doctors for the first time since suffering a collapsed lung in late September, according to ESPN's Jared Shanker.

Fisher also announced that star running back Dalvin Cook and linebacker Terrance Smith will also be a go against the Tigers. After true freshman Jacques Patrick had a breakout game against Syracuse last Saturday in place of then-injured Cook, the FSU bckfield just got even more dangerous. 

No. 1 Clemson and No. 16 FSU will kick things off at 3:30 p.m. on ABC.
