Clemson coach Dabo Swinney updated the injury status for a pair of Tiger defenders who have missed action lately.
"That's the million dollar question there," Swinney said when asked about the two on his call-in show Monday. "I'm hopeful. It's just Monday so we still have a ways (to go). I feel good about Skalski. Tyler is going to be close -- may be another week but he'll be back sooner rather than later. But I feel better about Skalski right now."
Swinney said Saturday that the preseason All-ACC selection Davis rolled his ankle in practice last week. He has six tackles, two for loss, with a sack over 53 snaps in three games this season. Skalski has tallied 27 tackles, 1.5 for loss, in 168 snaps over five games (four starts).
No. 1-ranked Clemson (6-0) hosts Boston College (4-2) for a noon broadcast start on ABC Saturday.
The Tigers then go to No. 4 Notre Dame next week (7:30 p.m./NBC).
