Florida State QB Christian Ponder had surgery late last week to remove scar tissue from the elbow on his throwing arm. Ponder will not practice until FSU arrives in Atlanta the day after Christmas, but maintains he intends to play in the Seminoles Chick-fil-A Bowl date with South Carolina on New Year’s Eve. Last week’s surgery was the second on the elbow Ponder had this season after he previously had built-up fluid in the bursa sac and fascia removed in mid-October. Ponder then missed the ACC championship game early in the month when blood was found in the joint. Ponder indicated that the surgery lat week removed scar tissue that was impeding the healing process in his elbow, but there is no structural damage.
