Clemson coach Dabo Swinney talked to the media on Tuesday for his weekly press conference and updated the injury status of the right ankle of senior linebacker Ben Boulware.
"Well he is lobbying," Swinney said. "I went to the statehouse one time, and I didn't know that lobbyist were real people. I didn't really understand the concept of that, but they really do hang out in the lobby, and that is what Ben Boulware is right now. He is a lobbyist. We will see. My plan is not to play him but he is lobbying hard trying to show his great back pedal and how good he feels and nothing wrong with him. This is bull. I love that. I love that about Ben. Our next goal is to win the division, and hopefully, we can get it done without him this week but right now I would say we would probably dress him. If we got to have him, we would play him. We got to do whatever we got to do to win the game. It might come down to an on-side kick. If it does, we got to do whatever we got to win the game. But if we can hold him, that would be the ideal situation for us."
Boulware has ten tackles and an interception through two games this season.
