Florida State RB Ponder has lung surgery
The Sports Xchange

Florida State running back Mario Pender underwent surgery to repair a hole in his lung, coach Jimbo Fisher said on his Wednesday night radio show.

The surgery was performed to close a minor hole in Pender’s lung and clear out an infection.

Pender has been hospitalized since Sept. 22 after he suffered a collapsed lung in practice. There is no timetable per his release.

“He had some infection in his lungs,” Fisher said. “They went in and did some surgery and they closed the hole up. It was just a little hole. They thought it would recover quickly but it never did. Now it looks like an extended stay.”
