Friday's Clemson Football practice report

by -

Clemson--“This was the fifth day in a row of hitting and you could tell that,” said head Coach Dabo Swinney after a two and a half hour workout on Friday morning. The Tigers will hold their first stadium scrimmage on Saturday. It will be closed to the public.
“We pushed through it and got done what we needed to get done. It was sloppy and not consistent, but it was a morning practice after four straight late afternoons.
“We knew it would be a tough day, I told them it would be a tough day before we started and it was a tough day. We started with the “Paw Drill” and went from there. There was good competition on both sides of the ball, which was good to see.”’
It was a frustrating day for the offense much of the day, but near the end Tajh Boyd hit Charone Peake for a 97 yard touchdown on a perfectly thrown long pass.
Cornerback Darius Robinson missed practice as he recovers from a concussion. It is not known how long he will be out. Martavis Bryant was limited, but much improved on Friday after missing some time with a groin injury. Receivers Mike Williams and Adam Humphries were both back at practice after missing time due to injury. Starting offensive guard David Beasley missed the morning practice with a lower abdominal strain.
