Dexter Lawrence should be 100% for the start of the season.

Clemson head coach Dabo Swinney gave an update on several injuries on the team at Tuesday's Clemson media day.

"Nolan Turner had shoulder surgery but he will be back when we start camp, " Swinney said. "He has all of his strength back. We'll have him in a shoulder harness. Jamie Skalski had a fifth metatarsal deal but he should be back. We had a couple of guys that had things over the summer but should be fine once we start camp."

Swinney also said Dexter Lawrence should be 100% this season after missing time last season and having to play hurt for a portion of the season.

"Dexter is good," Swinney said. "It's really surprising how well he played last year at times. He's excited."

For the season, Lawrence had 33 tackles, 2.5 tackles for loss, and 2 sacks.
