Tigers Resume Workouts Monday Afternoon

by - Correspondent -

CLEMSON - After a rare three-day weekend due to the off week, Clemson returned to practice Monday in what was anything but a typical beginning of the week workout.

While Monday's usually are spent watching film with some on-field activities added in for good measure, this workout was all out: Full pads, hard hitting, no holding back.

And one can understand why. With two straight losses, things around Tiger Town have been thrown into a frenzy. Again. So head coach Tommy Bowden can ill afford to take any chances with unranked, mid-major Central Michigan coming to town Saturday for Homecoming.

Thankfully, from his standpoint, the team looked the part - for the most part - Monday afternoon.

"We got some pretty good hitting in," Bowden said. "It was hard. They didn't have school today. They had three days off. It was like pulling teeth a little bit. But it went pretty good."

Otherwise, the theme was the same it has been for much of the last two weeks or so:

Trying to get special teams breakdowns fixed, and trying to plug holes in the offensive line. Bowden said work continued on both areas continued Monday, but refused to name any possible personnel changes.

"We'll announce it game time Saturday," he said.

Some good news did come out of Monday's workout. Bowden said of all the players who were in either yellow or green jersey's last week - a number which reached into double digits - all should be ready to go for Saturday with the possible exception of Rendrick Taylor.

"He's questionable," said Sports Information Director Tim Bourret.

Linebacker Courtney Vincent did suffer a sprained ankle Monday, but he is expected to be in good shape for Saturday.
