Ponder says he's OK, but throwing arm still sore

Ponder and FSU cruised Saturday.

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) - The latest fashion trend around the Florida State football program is the compression sleeve worn nearly on a weekly basis by quarterback Christian Ponder.

The senior quarterback sought to assure reporters Monday that he's fully recovered from a ruptured bursa sack near the elbow on his right throwing arm suffered during 24-19 win Oct. 16 over Boston College.

Wearing the ever present sleeve, Ponder conceded his arm was still a bit sore, but that he expected to be full throttle Thursday night when the 16th-ranked Seminoles visit North Carolina State in a critical Atlantic Coast Conference game.

Ponder, who suffered a season-ending shoulder injury last year, has battled his way through a variety of nagging injuries this season.
