will return to practice on Monday according to the Clemson SID's game notes for Boston College.

Reader is a fourth-year senior who started one game last year, but played 250 plays and had 27 tackles, 2.5 tackles for loss and 1.5 sacks. He is a veteran of 38 games over the last three years.

Swinney had said the following about Reader back in late August.

“D.J. Reader has decided to step away from football for a while,” said Swinney. “He has some personal issues he has to deal with at this time. We are not sure when he will return. We will support him any way we can. This is no different than a player being lost for a period of time due to injury."

Update: Swinney confirmed after his postgame press conference that Ready will rejoin the team and be back at practice on Monday.
