. He has participated in full practice the last two days.

"We will see how the game goes," Swinney said. "He's done everything he needs to do. He's demonstrated enough of a grasp that he could play. Right now he is a go. Whether it's one play, no plays or 50 plays we will see how it goes."

"He's not gonna be perfect day one. He hasn't played in a while. He doesn't have his sea legs, but he has practiced really well. At some point you just have to go play. I am excited to see him out there. Offensively, he can really help us, but you can't expect too much, too soon out of a guy that hasn't played in a year and a half."

One other practice note - TE Jordan Leggett had surgery on his meniscus earlier in the week. Swinney said that his mentality has been good throughout the process.
