Keith Adams Questionable for South Carolina Game
CLEMSON, SC -- Clemson Head Coach Tommy Bowden said after practice Wednesday that
All-America linebacker Keith Adams suffered a concussion during practice on
Tuesday. He suffered the concussion during a drill when he made contact
with red-shirt tackle Derrick Brantley. He is listed as questionable for
the South Carolina game at this point.
"I was surprised that he had the concussion," said Bowden. "We
have injuries like this due to contact at practice all the time. He had an
MRI done and the findings were that he had a concussion. We will evaluate
his status as the week goes on. We probably won't know anything for sure
until just before the game."
Bowden said if Adams can't go that Rodney Feaster would start in
his place. Ironically, Feaster made his only career start at South
Carolina last year. In Clemson's 31-21 win last year Adams made 27
tackles, a Clemson school record.
