Playing time breakdown: Tigers gain experience down the depth chart against Miami


by -

Clemson hasn't been able to get experience down the depth chart typical of this time of season, but when given the chance in a comfortable win over Miami, Dabo Swinney and the coaches mixed in a good rotation of players.

On offense, 12 different linemen played, with one in Mitchell Mayes again seeing starter reps after Marcus Tate went down with a season-ending knee injury early.

On defense, 10 different linemen played as part of a bigger rotation at all three levels defensively.

Another freshman made his season debut with wide receiver Cole Turner, going eight snaps and grabbing a first down on a catch. He can play in three more games and still redshirt.

With Tate injured, Swinney said that they are still looking to redshirt Collin Sadler, who has one game left play to redshirt.
