CLEMSON - Clemson finally received at least a partial piece of good news on the injury front.


X-rays performed on the leg of reserve offensive tackle Christian Capote showed no break, according to sources close to the team. Capote, a redshirt freshman from Miami, Fla., was carted off after injuring the leg during Saturday's full scrimmage in Death Valley.


At the moment there still is no word on any other damage which may have occured to the leg. However the source stressed the leg was not broken, easing the fears of the coaching staff.


Other players currently missing practice time for the Tigers include defensive back Justin Miller (sprained ankle), starting offensive guard Chip Myrick (mononucleosis), Duane Coleman (broken foot), Vontrell Jamison (broken arm), Michael Collins (leg injury), Kevin Burnette (recovering from torn ACL), and Roy Walker (torn ACL, out for the year).


More on this story as details become available.
