Former Clemson quarterback Chad Kelly has a torn ACL and lateral meniscus injury which will require season-ending surgery according to Ole Miss.

Kelly had an MRI on his right knee after his team's 37-27 win over Georgia Southern on Saturday. He completed 16 of 23 for 226 yards and a touchdown before leaving the game when a defender rolled into him. For the season, he had 2758 passing yards with 19 passing touchdowns and only eight interceptions. For his collegiate career, he has thrown for 6858 yards with 50 touchdowns and 21 interceptions.

Kelly was dismissed from the Clemson football team for "conduct detrimental" to the football program in 2014. During the 2014 spring game, he was 10-18 passing for 113 yards but threw two interceptions.

He red-shirted the 2012 season, then suffered a torn ACL in the 2013 Spring Game. But, he came back to play the September 7th S.C. State game. He played in five games overall in 2013 and was 10-17 passing for 58 yards. He added 16 rushes for 117 yards and a touchdown, including 56 yards on seven rushes at Virginia.
