during practice on Tuesday.

"We pushed him further today," Swinney said. "I thought he did a nice job. He is still not quite there, but he did a lot more today and we are going to try to get him to another level tomorrow. He is doing everything that he can. I was pleased with what I saw today, but we still want to see him a little bit more at game speed. So we will probably do a few drills tomorrow to try to simulate a couple things we need to see. He threw the ball well. I think the biggest thing is just getting used to that brace that he has on. I was encouraged but again it's literally a day to day thing. We could have some type of setback. I mean I have no idea. We still got all of Wednesday and Thursday with a lot of work to be done. But so far so good with what I saw today."
