Injury from title game holding back Mark Fields

Clemson defensive back Mark Fields spoke to the media after Friday's practice and shared that he is still recovering from a turf toe injury that he suffered during the National Championship win against Alabama.

"It happened in the National Championship game, and I wasn't able to go back in," Field said. "It has been bothering me ever since."

Fields had a tackle in the title game before leaving the game in the first quarter with the frustrating injury.

The cornerback said he has pain from cutting from side-to-side guarding wide receivers in practice.

"At my position just moving laterally is a real pain," Fields said. "Once I get that back I'll probably be able to do some other things."

A reporter asked if Fields is held out of practice because of the injury.

"Yeah sometimes," Fields said. "It is just a day to day thing. I don't want to be the guy sitting out with a yellow jersey, but it is what it is right now. I'm doing everything I need to do in order to get back."
