Clemson head coach Dabo Swinney said Monday night that Watson's surgery went well. The freshman quarterback had surgery Monday to repair the bone he broke in his right hand Saturday against Louisville.

Swinney said that Watson could be back by the game against Georgia Tech, but certainly by the home game against Georgia St. the following week.

Swinney said on Tuesday that the surgery went really great. It was a simple procedure. He will go to Boston College and will be important to keep him dialed him. They are not going to cast it. We will see how long he will be out and he will be back. He has to stay ready as if he is ready. He's a guy that is very focused and driven. I do not have any doubt that he will stay engaged. He is involved in the game and mentally repping the game.
