Watkins was held out of making the trip by doctors due to some abnormal results on a blood test. Those numbers returned to normal levels on Monday.

“Sammy got plenty of rest over the weekend and will be back at practice on Monday, and he should be able to play on Saturday against Georgia Tech,” said Head Coach Dabo SwinneyDabo Swinney

Watkins has played in just two of the first five games for the 15th ranked Tigers so far this year. He has 10 catches for 76 yards and also had six rushes for 95 yards and a touchdown, a 58-yard run against Furman. He also threw a 52-yard touchdown pass to Andre EllingtonAndre Ellington
