Wednesday Clemson Practice Notebook

by - Correspondent -

CLEMSON - A routine practice during an off week may have been Kelvin Grant's last day on the football field this season.

Grant, the junior wide receiver, was taken off the field with a knee injury during Wednesday's workout. Though no official word will come from the university until Thursday, two different sources said on Wednesday evening that it appeared Grant suffered a torn ACL.

If that proves to be true, he will be out for the season.

In five games this season, all in a reserve role, Grant has 10 catches for 84 yards and no touchdowns. He has returned one kickoff for 29 yards.


Bowden opened a portion of practice to the media Wednesday and put his scout team on display. The unit, consisting mostly of freshmen and redshirt freshmen, scrimmaged for the final 30 minutes of the workout.

"You can't do that very much, but it's good to give them a little something occasionally," Bowden said. "The kids like it...They've got a lot of fire in them."

Bowden said this is the first time he has scrimmaged his scout team exclusively during a season. He had done it before during preparation for a bowl game.


Bowden said the only goal for this off week is correcting missed assignments.

"It's the attention to detail," he said. "That's what I tell them every day. That's the objective. Keep doing what we've been doing well, plus intensify the attention to detail."


Offensive lineman Christian Capote did not practice due to a sprained foot.
