"Milan got hurt the other day. He rolled his ankle and tore a little ligament on his ankle when he got rolled up from behind," Swinney said. "He is probably out for a couple of weeks. He is probably going to miss the spring game. Right after the spring game he should be back kind of doing everything from a training standpoint but he is going to miss the next couple of weeks. We got Cannon and we got Leggett. Everybody else it is a complete MASH unit at tight end. We will probably take a couple of down the line offensive line guys and take advantage and train them up the next couple of weeks and get them involved so we are not wearing out Cannon and Leggett so much."
Clemson is missing tight ends Stanton Seckinger and D.J. Greenlee due to knee surgery and Jay Jay McCullough remains suspended from the team.
Swinney said one of his two healthy tight ends, Jordan Leggett, had a nice day in Wednesday's scrimmage in Death Valley.
"Jordan had a great day. We really need him to show up and take that next step," Swinney said. "This is a big year for Leggett. That position has been critical to our overall success, but you got to earn it."
