Swinney gives injury update on Amari Rodgers

Clemson head coach Dabo Swinney met with the media after practice on Monday evening and said that injured receiver Amari Rodgers is still ahead of schedule with the rehab on his torn ACL. Swinney said that Rodgers might be able to take the field later in September or after the bye week in October.

Rodgers tore his ACL in March and had surgery at the beginning of April. A return of the receiver in October would be an impressive rehab of only around six months.

Rodgers was an honorable mention All-ACC performer as an all-purpose selection, an All-ACC Academic selection and ranked second on the team in receptions with 55, tallying 575 yards and four touchdowns in 565 snaps in 15 games (all starts). He also returned 39 punts an average of 7.7 yards with one touchdown.

He caught team-high five passes for 73 yards at Texas A&M and recorded career-high six receptions, gaining 60 yards, at Georgia Tech. Rodgers had his best game of the season in Clemson's win at Florida St., when he earned co-offensive player of the game honors after posting career highs in receiving yards (156) and receiving touchdowns (two) on six receptions.
