Clemson, Sc—Clemson starting linebacker Brandon Maye will undergo arthroscopic knee surgery on Wednesday and will miss the North Texas game on Saturday. Clemson Head Coach Dabo Swinney made the announcement Tuesday night after practice.

Maye has started 25 of the last 26 Clemson games at linebacker and has 190 career tackles, including 103 last year. He has 12 career tackles for loss and five sacks to go with 24 quarterback pressures. In 2009, he set a Clemson single season record with five caused fumbles.

“Brandon just finished the best camp of his career,” said Swinney. “He had some swelling on Monday and Tuesday and after an MRI it was determined he needed arthroscopic surgery.
“He does not have a serious injury and we are optimistic he could see some playing time against Presbyterian on September 11.

“He had practiced on Monday the entire practice, but he had more swelling. We talked about this with Brandon and the doctors just before practice today and that is when the decision was made.”

Clemson Team Orthopedic Surgeon Dr. Larry Bowman will do the surgery on Wednesday.

Swinney said that Tig Willard would start at the weak side linebacker against North Texas.
