Swinney discusses his team injuries

Clemson head coach Dabo Swinney spoke to the media on Tuesday morning inside the Allen N. Reeves Football Operations Complex and shared the injury status of his team as they prepare for Kent State on Saturday at Memorial Stadium.

"Richard Yeargin is out for the year," Swinney said. "He's a really big loss for us. Y'all are well aware of that. Garrett Williams will definitely be out this week, but's he really making great progress. I think he'll be back sooner than later, so we're excited about where he is in his rehab. Probably right now, Denzel Johnson is doubtful for this week. I think he'll definitely be ready to go next week. He had a pectoral injury so he's been out the last week or so. He's the only other guy that would say is doubtful for this game. I'll check back and see where he is from a progress standpoint, but right now I'd call him doubtful for sure."

Swinney went on to talk about the status of freshman defensive end Logan Rudolph with a shoulder injury.

"He's trying to play through it and has demonstrated that he can. At some point, he's going to have to have it cleaned up. Hopefully, he doesn't have any setbacks, but right now he's performing well for us."

Veteran cornerback Marcus Edmond has missed some practice with a groin injury.

"He's back," Swinney said about Edmond. "He missed a lot of camp with that groin. It depends on right now what the personnel is whether or not he starts the first play or not. I think we make way too much out of that, too, especially with a corner."
