CLEMSON - Tommy Bowden is sticking to his guns.


After saying quarterback Charlie Whitehurst's status will be revisited after Thursday's practice, and that a decision on if the fifth-year senior will Saturday vs. Duke will be made on game day, he offered very little in the way of new information on Wednesday.


Asked how much Whitehurst practiced Wednesday, Bowden responded with a simple "some."


Asked if he would clarify, Bowden politely declined.


"I think what we said (Tuesday) is we'll evaluate on Thursday. At that particular time we'll evaluate after practice and let you (media) know on Saturday," Bowden said. "I'll stay to what I said earlier."

Greater flexibility in his wrist means freshman running back James Davis could play a larger role this Saturday.


Bowden said Davis' range of motion has improved significantly, allowing him to better control the football when he carries. The cast he'll wear in games - to protect the broken wrist he suffered Oct. 13 at N.C. State - is noticeably smaller than the one he wears in practice.


"He's done a little bit more every single day," Bowden said. "Whether he's done enough or not, it will probably be like Charlie. It will be very similar. We'll probably go out there in pregame and see how he feels."

Bowden said any word on the remaining suspensions due to be served wouldn't come until Saturday before the game.


Nathan Bennett, Duane Coleman and Maurice Nelson still must sit out a game for their role in the brawl with South Carolina last season.
