Injury Ends Jamison's Clemson Career
College Station, TX-- Clemson senior defensive lineman Vontrell Jamison suffered a torn achilles tendon during Clemson’s 27-6 loss to Texas A&M. According to Clemson Sports Information Director Tim Bourret, Jamison will be lost for the year which likely means his Clemson career is over. Jamison had been playing with a cast for a broken arm he suffered in the preseason.
Going into the Texas A&M game, Jamison was in on 53 plays and accounted for 4 tackles. Last season, Jamison had 27 tackles and 10 quarterback pressures.
Former tight end Bobby Williamson will likely see more playing time with the injury to Jamison.
