Sunday Clemson Football Notes
Todd McClinton, DT, suffered a sprained neck against Maryland. Was
taken to the Oconee Memorial Hospital in Seneca after he was taken
from the field on a cart. All tests were negative. He was back in
the Clemson training room today and attended the Clemson team meeting
on Sunday afternoon wearing a neck brace. His status for the South
Carolina game will be updated later in the week.
Nick Eason, DT, aggravated achilles tendon, played just 32 snaps
against Maryland. Questionable for South Carolina
Rony Delusme, SS, out for the rest of the year with a torn ACL
suffered against Maryland.
Cedric Johnson, OG, suffered pinched nerve in his left shoulder.
Like McClinton, also came to Clemson team meeting on Sunday in a neck
brace. Questionable for South Carolina. If he can not start, Nathan
Gillespie will make his first career start in his place.
Travis Pugh, DB, pulled groin muscle against Maryland, questionable.
Chad Jasmin, RB, missed Maryland game with pulled groin muscle.
Should return for South Carolina.
Clemson cornerback Justin Miller is now fifth in the nation
in interceptions with seven in 11 games. He is just one away from
the national leader. His seven interceptions are tied for second
best for a season in Clemson history. Record is 8 by Robert O'Neal
in 1989. Miller now has a 37.5 average on 10 kickoff returns. If he
had enough attempts he would lead the nation in that category. He is
three attempts short.
Aaron Hunt is now 11th in the nation in the nation in field
goals per game after his 4-4 performance against Maryland. He is
15-18 for the season and now 35-46 for his career. He has made 15 of
his last 16.
Clemson is now 10th in the nation in kickoff returns. The
Tigers are 15th in passing defense and lead the nation in that
