Brock Glenn starts Florida State football vs. Louisville ACC Championship

Florida State quarterback Chubba Purdy is 50/50 to play against Louisville due to a concussion suffered against Florida.

In the pregame warmups, Glenn was seen throwing the ball to the starting receivers and running backs, and later taking snaps with the first-team offensive line. After Glenn, AJ Duffy took snaps, and then Rodemaker and walk-on QB Dylan McNamara took snaps with the backups.

On a radio show Saturday morning, Rodemaker's father, Alan, confirmed that Rodemaker suffered a concussion against rival Florida last weekend. He mentioned that his son was 50/50 for playing against Louisville.

Alan explained, "He threw it really good, but the problem is just the timeframe stuff with all the protocols they have to go through. He did have a concussion. He was fine Saturday night after the game. Sunday, they run all the players who played through a series of tests with the training staff. That's pretty common across Division-I athletics. Some of the things they were concerned about Sunday, Monday and Tuesday did say that he had a concussion there last week. Throughout the week, he practiced every day and progressively got better and better. It's just a timeframe issue now. They are going to make a call on that today [Saturday]. We'll know something more today. I can't give you a final on that until after lunch today, after walkthroughs, the head doctor is going to give me a call."

Rodemaker was forced into the starting role after Jordan Travis suffered a season-ending injury against North Alabama two weeks ago. So far this season, Rodemaker has completed 32 of 56 passes with 5 touchdowns and no interceptions. He went 12 of 25 for 134 yards against the Gators in last week's victory.

When Rodemaker went down with his injury, Glenn took over for three plays before returning against the Gators. Glenn is 2 for 4 passing for 35 yards and has added six rushes for 38 yards.
